Hand Hygiene Prompting System

Paul is an Engineering Science Graduate focusing of Biomedical Systems engineering and minoring in robotics. Paul’s project involves person tracking for the purpose of hand-washing. Creating a tracking system which can accurately determine the amount of people entering a room/or household and reminding the individuals entering to use he alcohol gel dispenser. Hand hygiene is an imperative mitigation strategy during the emergence of a new pathogen, unfortunately it is often not adhered to in a clinical or community setting. However, the use of visual cues or reminder systems greatly improves the rate of hand hygiene.

Paul has interests in signal processing, hardware development, rehabilitation and clinical devices, and bio signal processing.
