About the solution

During the Covid-19 outbreak, Wyn Griffiths’ wife went to the hospital and realized that, despite being careful to frequently wash her hands, there was no way to avoid touching door handles. Realizing that door handles are a potential vehicle of infection, Griffiths came up with a solution and designed a hands-free door handle, that allows people to open doors using only their arms.

The design is universal and can be easily attached to any existing door handle. The file for printing this device are available online and can be downloaded for free.

Griffith says this is his “small contribution to try and slow the spread of the virus” and hopes that “people who have a 3D printer can help out their local hospital or anywhere the public visits by distributing these around”
