How Technology Enforces Personal Hygiene


Personal hygiene is on the rise and technology is a driving factor to it.

Micro organisms are in the air. But can be more densed in private areas such as bathroom, toilet, kitchen etc. 

Germs which are a class of micro organisms are quite harmful to man which makes it therefore imperative to be controlled with a hand sanitizer to be used after using the convenience (bathroom).

However, many public convenience users avoid these sanitizers, either in a rush to leave the premise or out of forgetfulness. While some don’t entirely bother to wash their hands after using the bathroom.

Now, introducing a bathroom door which opens only after you use hand sanitizer; This door allows free entrance to the convenience but denies exit only to those who don’t have their hands sanitized.

How it works

The sanitizer has a proximity sensor that senses the hands of a user. And then transmits signals to the door which initiates an “open” to the user. And locks in any user who refuses to comply with the use of hand sanitizer.

Concern: Suppose the sanitizer is faulty and it’s not able to dispense and transmit signal to the door. What becomes the fate of the users already in the bathroom?

In that case, the sanitizer should not control the door rather it should trigger an alarm or a voice that informs the user to go back and use the sanitizer. Such that, if the sanitizer is faulty, the user can still exit the door.
