Handguard reduces germ transfer

A compact antimicrobial handguard to help prevent the transfer of viruses and bacteria, including COVID-19, from everyday touchpoints such as door handles, touchscreens, keypads, switches, and push buttons has been launched.

Called TouchSafe, the handguard shields hands from contact with potentially contaminated surfaces and helps prevent the transfer of germs to the face, eyes and mouth. Its convex and concave design reduces the surface area of contact by as much as 80% compared with a hand, reducing the risk of infection as well as helping to break the chain of infection to other people and surfaces. It also has built-in antimicrobial properties which kill over 80% of bacteria in just 15 minutes and up to 99.99% in two hours, as well as deactivating some viruses.
