A device that reminds people to sanitise their hands has been brought to market following the securing of clinical trials.

The Sanitiser Sentinel reminds those passing to use nearby hand sanitisers through voice and light alerts, with clinical trials having been secured at several NHS and private practices across the country.

The Sentinel is a standalone unit that can be attached above or close to a hand sanitiser or soap dispenser, with an infra-red sensor that detects when a person comes within range of the machine.

When the sensor is set off, a light will flash, and the Sentinel will play a recorded and selectable message that will remind the passer-by to wash or sanitise their hands. The Sentinel has 26 selectable messages and sounds in a number of different languages, with toggles to turn the sound and lights on and off.

Founder Vivian Blick said: “In all of my years of global product inventions, manufacturing and production, I don’t think I have ever worked on a project that has the potential to save so many lives.

“We are excited to be launching the world’s first visual and spoken hand sanitisation reminder, that not only saves lives but also helps to limit the spread of harmful diseases.

“It is often easy for people to forget to sanitise their hands, especially when there is no one manning these stations, so this removes the potential for human error. The interest and take up that we have already had from both clinical and private organisations alongside global distribution companies shows just how valued this product already is.”
