IC-Tips recently published an article including Soapy’s advanced hygiene solutions, “Hand Hygiene: Unexpected Challenges and Cutting-Edge Solutions”. The comprehensive article covers the different challenges of hand hygiene and the different solutions offered today.
Without a doubt, handwashing is important. In the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is one of the only widely agreed-upon solutions to help combat the spread of the virus. The article leans on current scientific research to help understand why handwashing is important – and why workers don’t practice it as much as they do, even in the most important settings, such as hospitals.
“The obvious pitfall of reliance on handwashing, however, is the inability to know for certain who has done so–and done so correctly,” the article reads, “…Despite the agreement on the importance of handwashing, there remain significant problems with ensuring workplace compliance with hand hygiene protocols.”
This is where the ECO Hygiene Micro-Station comes into play. Ensuring a thorough wash cycle every single time is one of the micro-station’s strong points. It also features a boasts recognition feature, helping managers ensure their employees are practicing good hand hygiene inside work facilities. The ECO Hygiene Micro-Station is extremely efficient in electricity needed to heat up the water, reagent, and water usage – saving up to 60% of reagent and 90% of water otherwise wasted. The ECO Hygiene Micro-Station is suitable for places that need to wash a lot of hands, very thoroughly. It is designed to tailor the needs of restaurants, factories, schools, nursery homes, and more.
“Soapy designed a “smart sink” around the co-founders’ vision of diminishing the spread of hand-borne illnesses such as diarrhea in areas with limited access to clean water,” the article reads, regarding Soapy’s vision. “Soapy’s product seeks to further change the game by offering the world’s first AI-enhanced sink.”
