Also, antibacterial push pads and pull handles can be fitted to doors in hospitals to try and halt the spread of infection. They are an extra layer of protection for the time between someone washing their hands and using a door.

The pads release a small amount of antibacterial solution via a micro-valved top sheet and self-disinfect themselves each time the door is opened.
