Abstract:

A new method of hand washing has been evaluated and found to be effective, fast, non-irritating, consistent, and clinically acceptable. What remains now is further refinement so its cost and configuration may make it a reasonable alternative to the present method of presurgical scrub. The development of this device - an arm and hand washer - from the earliest to the latest prototype, is described and discussed. Author
