Final Year Design Project

Enabling young children to adopt an effective hand hygiene routine.

Up to 80% of communicable diseases are transferred by touch. 51% of adults don’t wash their hands after using the toilet and 33% don’t use soap. Proper hand washing can reduce absenteeism due to gastrointestinal illness in schoolchildren by up to 57%. The project aims to enable teachers of young children to successfully implement an effective hand hygiene routine which will become a lifelong habit.

The innovative soap dispenser and supporting products enable teachers to create and reinforce an effective hand hygiene routine for young schoolchildren, reducing illness and absenteeism.

The fun, interactive features, memorable narrative and character design of the products and supporting materials help to reinforce an effective hand hygiene routine, that becomes a lifelong habit.
