News Sponsored by Innovation award for Tork VR tool


The Tork VR Clean Hands Training app has won a 2020 Interclean Innovation Award for being ‘user-friendly, accessible and capable of stimulating behavioural change in a fun and engaging way’.


The interactive hand hygiene training simulation has also been described by the judges as ‘the perfect solution for the need to educate people worldwide on hand hygiene’.


Winners of the Interclean Innovation Awards were announced on 12 May; the Tork VR Clean Hands Training app was Category Winner for Related Products/Services.


Tork VR Clean Hands Training and Education uses virtual reality to provide healthcare staff with realistic scenarios where hand hygiene needs to be carried out. Essity believes itself to be one of the first companies ever to use VR in a hand hygiene training simulation.


The VR tool was developed in collaboration with a number of behavioural scientists, university hospitals and global hand hygiene experts.


Jenny Logenius, Global Brand Innovation Manager, Skincare Healthcare for Tork at Essity, said: “This innovative solution for hand hygiene training would not have been possible without the close collaboration with both healthcare professionals and world-leading experts in hand hygiene and behavioural science. Together we have created an unexpected but engaging way to help healthcare professionals improve hand hygiene and reduce the risk of Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) in the world.”


The Interclean Innovation Award judging panel said they were highly impressed by the user-friendly method of maintaining hand hygiene compliance in healthcare settings that the VR tool provides.


A panel spokesperson commented: “The accessibility


of ensuring ongoing training on-site in order to improve standards is a true innovation. The Virtual Reality approach is essential to stimulate behavioural change in a fun and engaging way. It is the perfect solution for the well- recognised need to educate people on hand hygiene.”


A recent Tork study revealed that 80% of healthcare professionals claimed they would like to improve their hand hygiene compliance – but they often found traditional forms of hand hygiene training to be uninspiring. The Tork VR Clean Hands tool moves training into the virtual world, making it more immediate and interactive.


Tork VR Clean Hands Training and Education is free to download via the App Store and Google Play. Participants need a compatible smartphone and VR headset with remote control or equivalent.

New Head of Commercial at Airdri


Leading designer and manufacturer of hand dryers, Airdri, has bolstered its sales team with the appointment of a new Head of Commercial.


Mike Smith brings over 12 years’ sales experience with him, having previously held positions with Bose Professional and Dyson.


He will be responsible for further developing the hand dryer business across the UK and Europe, as the firm continues


to grow its product portfolio with a number of exciting new launches over the next 12 months.


Mike commented: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Airdri as the company continues to invest in its workforce and focus on new product development. It’s an interesting time to be entering the hygiene sector, but if the past few months have taught us anything, it’s that our products and services have a vital role to play in preventing the spread of infection through proper hand hygiene measures.


“Although I will be working remotely alongside my new colleagues initially, I look forward to getting to know the team and visiting our customers when the country is back up and running in coming months.”
