Breaking the HAI Status Quo
Altitude Medical was formed by medics, scientists, engineers and public health experts. We are frustrated at the lack of interest and innovation in fighting hospital acquired infections and are striving for a step change. However, experts on the topic have noted that it is difficult to change behavior. There is a stalemate between hospital administrators who try to push for adherence and staff who find it cumbersome to remember, and sometimes disruptive to normal workflow to find a filled dispenser.
PullClean Hand Sanitizing Door Handle
Our device offers a completely new way to clean hands. Everybody knows that door handles can pass on infections and many companies have tried to develop solutions to keep door handles clean, while hospitals have introduced expensive new automatic doors. Our products turn this thinking on its head. We see door handles as an opportunity to enhance hand cleanliness. PullClean was developed to be user-friendly and easy to fit. PullClean issues both alcohol-based and non-alcohol sanitizer gel and is refillable via a simple replaceable cartridge.
CountClean Monitoring System
Data collection regarding hand hygiene compliance from hand sanitizer dispensers is currently difficult, costly, and most often requires a human to physically monitor use of the device. Altitude Medical has developed CountClean technology which enables monitoring of hand hygiene compliance rates and collects useful data about hand hygiene at the door. The CountClean solution is simple, cost effective, and most important does not involve human oversight or interaction.
