HANDWASHING SKILLS Since the onset of the coronavirus, Suffolk-based manufacturer Daro UV Systems, part of the DaRo Group, has seen a sharp increase in demand for its hand inspection cabinet. The company cites that more than 15% of large care home groups have placed an order for the product in the last month.

The hand inspection unit provides a striking visual and educational aid for users by using UVA, long wave UV light, and light responsive Glitterbug lotion - to highlight areas where handwashing must be improved. After washing, when hands are placed in the inspection cabinet any remaining lotion will fluoresce under the ultraviolet lamp, thus demonstrating flaws in the hand washing technique of the user. By helping members of institutions and organisations identify where they need to improve handwashing technique, more effective infection control can be achieved.
