At the core of SOAPY’s success lies the technology’s ability to generate a comprehensive handwashing quality index. By capturing and analyzing over 100 different parameters during handwashing, Soapy ensures the highest hygiene standards. Motion, speed, friction, body temperature, and more are meticulously evaluated and stored in a dedicated cloud application, providing hygiene-level and quality reports and preserving critical information.
The Cost-Efficient and Environmentally Friendly technology of Soapy not only prioritizes patient safety but also optimizes resource consumption. Using advanced sensing technologies, Soapy enables improved consumption of disinfectants, soap, and water, leading to operational cost savings. This dual benefit of cost-efficiency and environmental responsibility makes Soapy a game-changer in modern healthcare hygiene.
