Abstract

KiiltoClean Oy developed an automatic non-touch dosing device Kiilto Non-Touch for use in improving hand hygiene at public places like hospitals, healthcare centres, day care centres, canteens etc. in the HighTech-Hospital project 2010-2013. The device promotes good personal hygiene in health care premises, public spaces, toilets and bathrooms. The testing of hand hygiene of the personnel at an internal medicine ward was performed by researchers from VTT. The testing was first performed using hand-operated devices and thereafter using non-touch dosing devices. Hand washing movements are also shown in the presentation.
