Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, scientists have confirmed that Coronavirus can survive on door handles for up to nine days. Humans are vulnerable to viral Infections and pandemics may happen again in the future. I believe that the ongoing pandemic is going to permanently change the way we design some products, I have introduced a new generation of door openers to avoid physical hand contact, a Hands-free door pedal that allows people to open doors using only their feet. This can be an easy and efficient way to convert the manual handles to opening pedals and avoid the hand to hand transmissions that happen via door handles.
