JAMM PRODUCTS LAUNCHES HANDS-FREE DOOR HANDLE TO HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF INFECTIONS, AND TO HELP THOSE WITH REDUCED HAND FUNCTION.

The Hands-Free Door Handle, patented and produced by Jamm Products Ltd, helps premises in healthcare, education, transport, hospitality, and the food and drink industry prevent harmful infections caused by germs being passed on via door handles.

The Hands-Free Door Handle is a simple retro fit to most doors via two drilled holes, and once fitted, removes the need to touch door handles which may be contaminated with contagious germs, or may be difficult to use. In addition, the Hands-Free Door Handle has a lifetime silver ion additive that prevents bacteria reproducing1, should they find their way to the handle. Its anti-ligature design has also been mechanically tested in UK laboratory conditions to withstand severe forces and is certified as a Grade 4 handle (BS8424:2004) - 'suitable for severe duty’ - which certifies use in facilities up to prison standard.

Door handles are one of the most touched surfaces in any building2, and researchers at the University of California, found that on average, people unconsciously touch their faces 15.7 times an hour3. Touching a germ-contaminated surface prior to touching your face can lead to infectio entering your body. Influenza, E.coli, MRSA, and Norovirus are all commonly found on door handles, and there is a growing list of drug resistant bugs to avoid. In fact, according to the World Health Organisation, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society.

Washrooms are a particular challenge in the fight against infections caused by germs being passed on through touching contaminated surfaces. This issue is highlighted by the trend towards ‘hands-free’ in today's washrooms: hands-free flushes, hands-free taps, hands-free soap, and hands-free dryers. But with no guarantee that the person before you washed their hands after visiting the washroom, even in “hands-free” washrooms, the door handle is a weak link in the battle against the spread of germs and infections.

Marc Ward, Founder and MD at Jamm said: “I was asked by Adam Stringer (Product Design Consultant at Falmouth University) if I thought there was a way to open a door without touching it to prevent germs being passed on. When I started to research the issue, I was amazed to learn that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (USA), 80 per cent of all infections are transmitted by hands. The issue for high traffic areas which are prone to germs, such as washrooms, was obvious. I also learned of the difficulty doors present to those with limited or reduced hand function. I invented the Hands-Free Door Handle to help solve these problems.”

The World's most effective doorstop Debuts at Medica

Jamm makes its debut at Medica (Stand 16G25-1), with its innovative and uniquely designed safety product, the Jamm Doorstop.
Jamm Doorstops are designed and manufactured in the UK and they protect fingers from lifechanging injuries from the handle and the hinge side of doors.
In the UK alone, around 28,000 children visit hospital every year with injuries to their fingers from doors and door frames*. Protecting little fingers from the hinge side of a door is even more important than the handle side because of the huge pressure generated there when a door
closes.
The unique and patented design of the Jamm Doorstop holds doors tight from both sides at the same time, and works on all floor surfaces with all sizes of hinged doors. They slide under the end of the door, and once in place with a grown-up push, their curved profile holds the door fast.
There are five funky colours to choose from, and all Jamm products come with simple instructions. They’re easy to use, and child-proof, which is good news for little fingers everywhere.
The packaging is as Eco friendly as possible, with no glue or staples. And the instructions for safe use are printed on the inside of the packaging, so it’s designed to be kept, not dumped.
Jamm Managing Director and Doorstop inventor Marc Ward said “Protecting little fingers is close to our hearts at Jamm, so we’re extremely excited to be showing our Doorstop Medica 2017. We’ve had a fantastic response from everyone who’s seen our Doorstop, so we hope visitors to the show feel the same way too.”
