Binh Thuan: No-touch hand washing device invented for Covid-19 prevention

BTO - A no-touch hand wash device, which was assembled by a youth union member and a student, has been put into use in Ham Thuan Bac district for the fight against Covid-19 pandemic.

The automatic device weighing 0.5 kg is an inventive product made by two young inventors, Mr. Nguyen Anh Tien- a cadre of Ham Thuan Bac district’s Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Branch, and student Nguyen Bui Anh Kiet from grade 12A1-Nguyen Van Linh high school (Ham Thuan Bac district). With nearly VND 900,000, they bought components from Ho Chi Minh City and installed the machine by themselves within 3 days. Especially, this equipment uses 12-volt power source, and in case of power cut, it can be operated by solar-power supply thanks to an integrated solar panel system. The device has been placed at Ma Lam townlet’s people’s committee office since March 31 to serve for citizens who come to this agency for administrative procedures. It is easy to use this equipment, people just put their hands into the washing compartment, and the sensor will detect and control the pump engine to spray anti-bacterial fluid. After that, people can wash their hand in accordance with instructions.

Hand washing inventive product

The inventor intents to create a small container for hand washing sanitizer in order to reduce the costs as well as the size of the device. At the same time, they are planning to create an automatic body-temperature meter attached with a camera to take photos of people with high body temperature. This newly-invented device helps reduce risks of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection for people, contributing to the joint effort of the whole community in Covid-19 combat. With such benefit and convenience brought by this equipment, a number of units, organizations and enterprises in Ham Thuan Bac have placed orders for this product.
