Technology fitted onto door handles has been found to dramatically raise compliance with hand hygiene. From technology that sprays cleaner onto door handles each time they are used, to a specialist hygienic door handle that dispenses sanitizing gel onto users hands upon grip, products exist for the purpose of going beyond encouraging hand hygiene to actively ensuring hand cleanliness. A number of large food companies across the world have embraced this approach with products such as Pure Hold Hygiene Handle, which is fitted onto pull-doors and dispenses sanitizing gel onto users’ hands upon grip.
