Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that hand disinfection is key in the prevention of nosocomial infections since more than 80% of all infectious diseases are spread by hand contact. Alcohol based hand sanitizers have been voted as better at killing germs. Alcohol-based sanitizer reduces the spread of rotavirus, adenovirus and rhinovirus as compared to medicated and non-medicated hand soaps.

The advantage of the dispenser is that it uses touchless technology contact from the infected person to the healthy person is significantly reduced thus minimizing the spread of infections.
