StatGear’s Hygiene Hand Antimicrobial Brass EDC Door Opener & Stylus Helps You Flatten The Curve

We received this note from StatGear founder Avi Goldstein and thought his idea was worth a share.

My company StatGear was started by myself, a NY City Paramedic 10 years ago and has been focused on designing ans manufacturing survival and rescue tools for many first responders and government agencies as well as some innovative edc (everyday carry) items for outdoor enthusiasts. 

Our newly launched Kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for a keychain tool to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The Hygiene Hand is made from Brass. It won’t stop the COVID-19 virus from surviving on the surface but studies show it’s only there for hours rather than days associated with some other materials such as steel.

Here are a some of the uses for this device. It gives you some stand-off from those surface areas that might harbor the virus.
