Adam Walker (Surface Skins)
Entrepreneur: Adam Walker
Business: Surface Skins
SurfaceSkins are innovative, patented, compression-activated hand hygiene devices that clip-fit directly to existing door handles and push plates in hospital and clinical environments to reduce the spread of Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI’s) such as E. coli, Enterococcus Faecalis, S Aureus, MRSA and potentially C-Diff. On contact, the devices immediately deliver a clinically approved disinfectant liquid directly to the immediate contact surface thereby producing an instantaneous self-cleaning effect on the handle. Any residual liquid is evaporated, leaving it dry within seconds of use. Door handles and push-plates are therefore rendered disinfected at all times, reducing the risk of microorganism transmission between users.

A NHS trial of SurfaceSkins has shown the product works, killing bacteria in an instant. SurfaceSkins provide a vital, secondary defence system, designed specifically to complement existing alcohol gel dispensers, and will target the Healthcare, veterinary, dental, cruise ship and pub/bar market. Third party advertising also offsets or raises a profit against implementation costs, thus providing a cost-effective and sustainable business.
