A team project to reduce infections in hospitals
UV Sink Trap Sterilisation
Problem: Poor hand hygiene is the number one cause of infections in hospitals and costs nearly 100 thousand lives in the US every year.
Solution: Our UV bottle trap effectively sterilises the dirty water under the plug hole and reduces growth of bacteria in the bottle trap. This stops harmful bacteria being released back into the room when the tap is turned on and 'blow back' occurs.
Material: Stainless Steel, Quartz Glass, Rubber
Context: Masters university project
