Coronavirus and Hand Hygiene

The recent outbreak in China has created heightened societal awareness around health and wellness.  We’re being asked a lot about the new Coronavirus and whether or not we can help.  The most important thing to recognize about this pathogen is that it is new, and hence, has not been studied anywhere near as much as the other infections we’re more familiar with.  This results in a lot of fear because people don’t like uncertainty.  However, the CDC has recently issued very sensible advice for Coronavirus: wash your hands with soap and water, and if this is not possible, sanitize with an sanitizer gel with at least 60% alcohol.

Our products (PullClean & TurnClean) are designed to make hand sanitization easier in order to reduce the harm and cost caused by avoidable infections.  Our sanitizer is 70% alcohol and while we follow the CDC’s advice in suggesting people concerned about Coronavirus wash their hands with soap and water wherever possible, we’d be proud to help any organization that wants to help increase rates of hand sanitization by installing our products on their doors.

At this time of heightened concern, if you want to increase your organisation’s barriers to infection and increase the opportunities for your customers and staff to sanitize their hands, please get in touch by calling us at 1-888-959-0211 or sending us an e-mail at customersupport@altitudemedical.com for special offers.

Product Update: OpenClean Technologies Seeks Trial Sites for CountClean

Our CountClean product is in use in hospitals, universities and aged care facilities across the country, but we are now seeking to expand its use into the services industry. CountClean uses patented technology to produce rich, ongoing, and highly useful data on rates of hand sanitization. We believe that CountClean enabled handles could have a dramatic effect on staff hand hygiene where the handle is positioned so as to maximise use. We are interested in working with partners who prioritize hand hygiene and would like to supplement their current audit approach with 24/7 monitoring of hand hygiene. Please get in touch!

TurnClean product in stock and ready for NRA!

A quick note to remind everyone that we’ll be at the National Restaurant Association show again in Chicago on the 18th to 21st of May. We’re on booth 10166 and looking forward to discussing how TurnClean and PullClean can improve hand sanitization in your restaurant (and sports bar, and coffee shop, and kitchen…). If you would like to book a meeting with one of our sales team, please get in touch.
