Control your hand hygiene with smartphone messengers

7 May '20
VPK Potok and M-Plata, two Russian companies, have jointly developed a contactless dispenser for people to treat their hands as part of COVID-19, flu and other respiratory viral infections prevention measures.

The partners are resident companies of the Zhigulevskaya Dolina Technopark in Samara Oblast, in the Lower Volga region, and of the Strogino Technopark in Moscow, respectively. VPK Potok focuses on R&D in the field of global monitoring / remote control systems integrated with popular smartphone messengers, such as Viber or WhatsApp.


Contactless dispenser

According to VPK Potok CEO Sergei Sychugov, his company has contributed to the joint effort with a system that enables remote messenger-assisted equipment performance control and disinfectant liquid consumption alert. Data from a liquid level sensor, protective hatch sensor and power alert sensor is sent to a project server, and respective alerts and commands get generated and dispatched. Hardware to accommodate the sensors and the software comes from their partners at M-Plata.

One disinfectant filling cycle is reported to treat 5,000+ pairs of hands. The system is being put into production with a planned capacity of 2,000 dispensers a month.
