Ewash / Emergency flushing system

Ewash
Ewash

Ewash is an emergency eyewash and shower device that assists patients with chemical eye injuries. When the patient approaches Ewash, voice will guide the patient to bring his/her body and face closer to the flushing area. The patient can start flushing manually or by foot. Ewash's facial flushing area conforms to the human face, can quickly guide the patient to align their eyes, and automatically perform eye washing through face sensing. An electronic pH detector is set at the drain hole, which is activated by the electric power generated by the flushing water flow.
