COVID-19 is currently at the top of everyone’s minds, and health professionals have made it clear that one of the best ways to stay healthy is to avoid touching public surfaces, such as door handles, with your hands. Door handles are among the most germ-infested objects in houses, hospitals, factories, and elderly homes, and these germs can easily enter your body if you touch your face after opening or closing doors with your hands.

Since the creation of Materialise, our mission has been to build a better and healthier world. As the coronavirus continues to spread, we’re doing our part to help the world in the way that we know best — with 3D-printed designs. More specifically, door openers that go over existing handles so people can open and close doors with their forearms instead of their hands.
