This thesis deals with designing a product that increases glove hygiene in hospitals and the healthcare sector. Poor hygiene allows hospitals to become hotspots for dangerous diseases that sometimes prove fatal, as happens to 75 000 people in America yearly. The cleanliness of a persons’ hands is the first line of defense and seeing how the process of putting on gloves right now raises questions to the underlying hygiene involved and the need for a radical change when it comes to the hygiene of hospitals. SAHD is an automated glove dispenser and glove dresser that eliminates the current process of glove-dressing, removing the user from interacting with the outside of the glove keeping the hygiene & cleanliness of the users’ hands while also making the whole process a lot faster than the current. SAHD has been developed during the Covid pandemic which has made visiting hospitals for observation almost impossible negatively impacting the development phase dragging it out in certain areas.
