Handy Cleanse / Handle concept

Handy Cleanse
Handy Cleanse

A door handle design aims for high-virus-density spaces, especially tagreting temporary-hospitals and field
hospitals which are rather poorly equipped.
Turning handle triggers the sprayer mechanism inside to spread out ethanol into the hollow part of handle, applying it onto both hand and handle to disinfect. Furthermore, the hollow form allows the handle to reach minimum hand-to-surface contact, leaving less virus transmitting.
Door handles are the very first and last things that persons
touch when coming in and out a space(ward) .
