Self-Sanitizing Handle / Door Handle

Self-Sanitizing Handle

Door handles in public places are always infested with countless pathogens. However, the pathogens cannot be eliminated in time because wiping handles with the disinfectant is tiring and easy to forget. This may increase the possibility of a user getting various infectious diseases.
The Self-Sanitizing Handle offers an efficient sanitation solution by combining sprayer and rotation, which means the sprayer sprays disinfectant out to sanitize the handle and the handle 360° rotates itself to make sure complete sanitation.
After this progress, the handle will be totally clean and safer to touch, the spread of diseases will also decrease.
