Innovative Touchless dispensers at MEDICA 2016: Improve hand hygiene, reduce infections

Touchless hygiene solutions ease hand disinfection, optimise space required and offer versatility of use 

Issum/ Düsseldorf, 02.November. Careful hand hygiene is the most effective single measure to prevent hospital infections. With this in mind, OPHARDT hygiene will present various product innovations around hand hygiene within healthcare institutions and for other applications at the Medical trade fair MEDICA in Düsseldorf, Germany.

With „the Untouchable“ the company expands their product range with high quality, touchless, multi-functional systems ideally suited for use in health care facilities (Dentists) and laboratories.  Using an innovative infrared-sensor-technology „the Untouchable“ automatically dispenses water, soap and disinfectant in one compact system. The new system requires a minimum of space and offers a very comfortable to use system in comparison to conventional situations where dispensers and taps for water, soap and disinfection solution are separate from each other. “The Untouchable” is available in various versions either for table top or wall installation.

Touchless function, compact space requirement, diverse use 

Particularly flexible for doctors surgeries and patient areas: thanks to compact table top installation or wall mounting – both standard – the new touchless dispenser system RX5 T offers the possibility to complete hand hygiene routines almost anywhere. The robust plastic housing and the compatibility with the new disposable hygiene packaging (according to current RKI recommendations) speaks for the new RX5 T „Touchless“ dispenser. 

Trend towards hand disinfection in public areas:  The PRAESIDIO sets new standards 

As a special service to guests, customers and visitors, opportunities for hand hygiene are being set up more and more in areas with large visitor numbers (e.g. office buildings, shopping centres, airports, train stations and restaurants). Furthermore, hygiene disinfection points are also mounted more often in the entrance halls of hospitals. In this way companies and health care institutions support the increasing demand for hand hygiene in public places.

Here the PRAESIDIO sets new standards: the new touchless dispenser system combines reliable „Touchless“-Technology with classic design and robust stainless steel housing. Various installation options (wall mounting or free standing on a stainless steel column adjustable in height) guarantee flexible mounting and positioning as well as an intuitive and ergonomic use. This makes hand disinfection to support health simple, comfortable and easy for everyone.
