About the solution

Designer Steve Brooks was concerned about the spread of the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and wanted to come up with a device that could allow people to open door without touching the handles.

So he designed the Hygienehook, a portable and personal device that people can carry around with them and use as a tool to open any doors or even touch buttons with it.

The Hygienehook is made from a durable non-porous material that is easy to clean and sterilize.

The Hygienehok are being sold online and Steve has made a pledge that for every one that’s sold, one will be donated to UK’s National Health System. At the beginning of April, 250 Hygienehooks had been donated to the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
