CT University develops 3D printed covid-19 ‘safety key’
This Safety key can be used on ATM buttons, Lift buttons and even on toilet flush buttons
Ludhiana: To go ‘touch-less’ during this pandemic, CT University’s Robotics and Automation Lab has developed a 3D Printed Covid-19 Safety Key. This key can work on L and U-Shaped door handles.
This Safety key can be used on ATM buttons, Lift buttons and even on toilet flush buttons. Telling about this key, Dr. Harmeet Singh, Assistant Professor said, “The main idea behind this key is that if we are going to any crowed places like malls, hospitals and banks, then this key will protect us from Covid-19 by keeping our hand away from any potential contaminated surfaces. The cost of the key is less than 50 rupees which is very less as compared to the various keys that are already available in the market.”
Explaining more about the key, Dr. Singh added, “There are so many Safety keys that are present in the market and even 3D designs are there on the internet, but we have made the design according to our basic requirements. This key will eliminate the hand contact on potentials COVID -19 Contaminated surfaces and it will reduce the usage of the sanitizer to greater extent as we have to just sanitize the safety key very few times as compared to sanitizing our hands after every contact.”
Manbir Singh, Managing Director, CTU congratulated the team and wished that education and research together can overcome this pandemic.
