Clean your hands / Handle in the public transportation

Clean your hands
Clean your hands

Ordinary people usually have over 60,000 bacteria living in their hands.
Many people use the handle of public transportation.
So, holding the handle is like holding hands of others.
After all, we are exposed to bacteria unprotected.

CYH (=Clean your hands) - using the principles of the dynamometer, transforms the force that user exerts to the electricity energy.
Electricity generated by this operation becomes the source of the UV LED and CYH will sterilize.
This blocks access of bacteria and keep your hands clean to prevent disease and reduce the possibility of getting infected.
