Mobile Apps for Hand Hygiene Monitoring

This project is part of a larger project on Hand Hygiene, which aims to address hand hygiene in hospitals by combining a suite of digital monitoring products with advanced data analytics. We expect to create a system that monitors the full user journey and performs constant data analysis through a cloud-based system. This will have applications beyond hospital settings, such as in aged care, schools and hospitality.

Student cohort

Double Semester


The aim of this project is to develop a mobile app for monitoring the hand washing performance of nurses and doctors. The data comes from the sensor tracking systems embedded into the wash stations and alcohol dispensers. The mobile app will be used by nurses and doctors to monitor their hand washing habits, in order to check whether they comply with the hospital regulations.
