New research revealed important finding about the handrub volume required to properly cover whole hands. Palm coverage is not influenced by hand size, but dorsum coverage is largely dependent.
- “1 milliliter handrub is not sufficient for effective hand hygiene.
- 3 milliliter handrub cover small hands on both sides palms and dorsums.
- 3 milliliter handrub cover palms but not dorsums of medium and large hands.”
We are proud contributors to this research.
