While it may be assumed that medical staff are on their A game when it comes to sanitizing their hands on a regular basis, the Hyginex Bracelet shows that many of them require a prompt to do so. The Hyginex Bracelet is not necessarily a reflection on their neglect, but more on the need to wash hands more frequently as well as the distractions that take place in their profession.

Essentially, the Hyginex Bracelet is paired with sensor-embedded soap dispensers to monitor whether their hands have been washed properly or not. There is also a tiny red LED light to remind medical practitioners to wash their hands between patients. The Hyginex Bracelet then sends hygiene regimen information to hospital managers.
