Washing your hands—it’s not rocket science.
Well maybe not, but it most certainly is a science. In this episode of "Preview of Tomorrow," Max Simonovsky, Founder and CEO of Soapy Care, stresses the importance of effective handwashing as a way to mitigate the spread of infectious disease in densely populated cities. Soapy Care provides a solution to inefficient hand washing through the CleanMachine, a smart sink that dispenses optimal amounts of both soap and water, while it projects visual images displaying the correct handwashing technique.
