Foot operated sanitizer dispenser
The Mechanical Engineering department at FISAT has come forward with an indigenous design, “Foot operated sanitizer dispenser”, a much-needed essential utility product to help us being safe at the challenging early days of Covid-19.
The foot operated sanitizer dispenser is a device that can dispense a controlled amount of hand sanitizer (or soap solution). A gentle press by foot on the pedal dispenses approximately 5ml of liquid sanitizer. This allows the user to use hand sanitizer without touching the bottle with the help of a foot-pedal operated mechanism. It ensures that the bottle itself is not spreading the virus and thus helps in breaking the transmission.
It supports most bottle sizes with the help of an adjustment mechanism. The device is portable and thus gives it a practical advantage to use it conveniently at all places with ease.
