There are many surfaces and buttons in public like keypads, door handles, and gas pumps, that are touched by countless people. These surfaces collect hundreds of germs.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us take precautions to limit contact with commonly touched surfaces like pulling sleeves around our hands to grab door handles and push buttons. What if there's a tool to avoid touching all of these germ-infested areas?

The TouchTool helps people avoid using their hands to touch commonly used surfaces.

Many people believe that gloves protect from germs and bacteria. Gloves surprisingly can do more harm than good if not used correctly. Gloves act as a barrier against your physical body that can build up germs if not worn or disposed of properly. 

With the invention of the TouchTool, anyone can press, pull, and turn objects at their fingertips, safely.

The benefit of the TouchTool Pro is that brass materials have antimicrobial properties. Different microorganisms can live on certain materials up to 2-3 days. Although the TouchTools are beneficial for avoiding contact with germs, it's still essential to practice proper hygiene in addition to using this tool. The TouchTool can and should be washed or sanitized after each day's use.

Everyone has a checklist before they leave the house—wallet, keys, phone. We recommend adding these additional tools to the checklist:

  • TouchTool or TouchTool Pro
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Mask

Please note: While the TouchTool is handy, it's essential to use it in conjunction with frequent hand washing. The CDC advises you should continue washing your hands and wearing a mask when going into public areas.
