How you can help flatten the curve?


With the spread of COVID-19, everyone has a part to play in flattening the curve of the epidemic so health systems can cope and give scientists time to research treatments.  Experts believe that COVID-19 can survive on surfaces for an extended time and door handles represent a high risk of contamination.

3D Printing technology may lend a hand and here is how!

The following is a 3D printed door handle (design courtesy of Materialise®) that allows opening and closing doors with your arm, removing the need for direct contact with door handles. The hands-free door handle can be fitted without replacing existing cylindrical door handles.
