Proper Hand Hygiene – Invest in a Healthier Future

Our Purpose

To support the health, safety, and well-being of organizations, their employees, and the individuals they serve or care for by helping to promote, monitor, and improve hand hygiene compliance ultimately saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars in unnecessary expense

Why Now?

In May 2022, the WHO published its first ever global report on infection prevention and control (add reference footnote) in which it stated that 70% of global infections could be prevented where good hand hygiene practices were followed. Additionally, Infection transmission leading to significant mortalities has been a major issue for years yet has flown under the radar, however, the Covid pandemic has shone a spotlight on the importance of implementing a proven solution to proper hand hygiene.

Frontline workers and care givers are also putting their own health at risk. The awareness of the importance of hand washing has grown tremendously while institutional reputations are in jeopardy. Forward-looking companies will seek out opportunities to invest in, partner with, or acquire technologies to improve the overall health and wellbeing of their organizations and the communities they serve.

How Patented HanGenix® Technology Works

Ultrasound-based transmitter

“Validation Zones” are established using an ultrasound-based transmitter to trigger audible, time-based reminders when it's time to wash hands, or if appropriate hand hygiene does not occur.

Wireless ID tag

Individuals wear a wireless ID tag which records all hand hygiene events when moving in and out of “Validation Zones.” Data is collected and transmitted directly to the system’s data server in real-time.

Sensor equipped dispenser

The system features a sensor in the dispenser (soap, alcohol, etc.) to specifyand validate who, when, and where hands were sanitized.

Proven in Healthcare.
Critical to All.

Since 2010, well in advance of the COVID 19 pandemic, HanGenix has been at the forefront of helping healthcare institutions confront the problem of hand hygiene negligence. The vulnerabilities of poor hand hygiene are not limited to hospitals, they remain critical issues in all medical practices, long-term care facilities, and any industry where there is considerable person-to-person or person-to-surface contact.
