Story

We are all connected. Never has that been more apparent than now. Even when we’re separate, we’re together in our efforts. Because of the current pandemic, we now have a greater responsibility to protect each other.

Infectious diseases have shaped human history and remain with us today, continuing to burden populations worldwide and threaten the global economy. Older adults and vulnerable populations are especially at risk. The current pandemic has affected more than 3 million people in the world, and yet, we have no clear cut solution at the moment.

In a time of complexity and confusion, sanitation should be simple. Sanitation 101 involves clean hands.

A sanitation spritzer, PumPix has the appearance of a sleek wrist band. Aside from its comfortable, lightweight wearability, this product is affordable and simple to use on your hands, as well as commonly touched surfaces both in public and at home. After you fill-up the gadget’s inner chamber, PumPix is good for more than 100 pumps.

PumPix offers a straightforward design and peace of mind. You no longer need to buy small bottles of sanitizer. You can use PumPiX as many times as you wish and refill it when you run out of sanitizing liquid! Less plastic means less harm to the environment!

After touching the elevator button, a grimy door handle at the supermarket, or your phone’s touch screen, clean those nasty germs with PumPiX.

The PumPix backward sliding button activates the inner chamber with one pump, releasing just the right amount of sanitizing mist to rub on both hands from front to back and between fingers.

PumPix is unisex, suitable for both men and women of any age and the design is breathable with sweat absorption capabilities.

PumPiX is your sanitizer at hand and your companion in the battle against illness. We have found manufacturers in the U.S. that will produce PumPiX so that we can deliver it to you fast. Remember: This won’t end for anyone until it ends for everyone. 

Why PumPiX?

In these hard days of lockdowns, quarantines, and isolation, shopping, working, studying, and socializing are all taking place in homes.  However, understandably, we all have to leave home from time to time for essential needs like groceries or doctor’s appointments. It doesn’t matter how hard you try to stay away from crowded places, steer clear of public transportation, and wear a face mask, if you have no effective way to consistently clean your hands.

I know you’ve heard it a lot already, but let me echo this one more time: "Wash your hands regularly and clean commonly touched surfaces both in public and at home.”

Yes, you heard that right. Even if you don’t leave your house, it’s a good idea (read necessary) to wash your hands and sanitize objects in your home that might have been infected (doorknobs, plastic bags, delivery items, etc.)

According to BCCDC, more than %80 of bacteria and viruses are transferred to your body via your hands. This is why it’s so important to wash your hands and keep them clean at all times, especially before preparing or eating food, after caring for someone else who is sick, before and after treating a wound, after using the toilet or changing a baby’s diaper, after coughing or sneezing, after touching garbage, and after handling pets and animal waste or food.

 Sometimes you don’t have access to water and soap or you just don’t feel like going to the bathroom again and again and again. That’s alright! Hand sanitizer does the job too. However, remembering to carry it sometimes presents an additional unwanted hassle. This is where PumPiX comes in!

 You can wear PumPiX on your wrist all day, everywhere. This way, you will have direct access to a disinfectant without having to deal with the additional responsibilities of remembering to grab it and carry it around. By pressing the button on this small, lightweight, and portable gadget, it will pump disinfectant on your hands or the surface you plan to touch and sanitize in a matter of seconds.

 How it began... 

While reading about Coronavirus, I realized the utmost importance of hand sanitation. I decided to develop a new product to help combat the pandemic. I wanted to create a product that would help with sanitation, cut down some steps that interfere with the convenience of ongoing cleanliness processes, and in doing so, offer peace of mind. The wrist seemed like the ideal place for such a product, especially given the popularity of this style when it comes to Fitbit and other health-related monitoring device bands.

PumPiX was born after several sketches and basic designs. I perfected the design by creating a wristband with a container and a separate chamber inside to help regulate the liquid flow. 

 At long last, PumPiX was finalized, resulting in a stylish gadget worn on the wrist for sanitation purposes all throughout the day.  It is urgently important for me to get this product out to market as soon as possible, to make a difference in these trying times.

Important facts to keep in mind


          •  You may fill PumPix with any sanitizing liquid that fits your intended usage (i.e., hands and surface areas).
          •  Do not use cleaning agents like bleach, which would be harmful to your skin.
          •  Do not mix more than one kind of detergent or liquid together.
          •  Do not use common household items that have not been approved by professionals for use within a sanitizing liquid.
          •  Follow CDC guidelines on your choice of sanitation liquid, depending on your intended use.
          •  A sanitizing liquid is not included in this product.

 Warning and disclaimer 


          •  Do not use sanitizing liquid on your face, mouth, or eyes.
          •  Do not spray sanitizing liquid directly on food.
          •  The best way to keep yourself safe from Coronavirus is to stay at home.
          •  PumPiX is a gadget that helps maintain cleanliness. It does not offer protection if other safety precautions are breached.

Timeline

By accessing hand sanitizer throughout the day, quite literally at your fingertips, you just may protect your parents, grandparents, the sweet old lady next door, your asthmatic coworker, your wise elderly professor, the hardworking grocer bagging food for your community, or the tireless DoorDasher delivering your food to put food on the table for his own family. The list goes on.

Staying home is still the recommended protocol until further notice. But for the essential workers, those quarantining in groups large and small, and everyday folks running necessary errands and exchanging food and groceries from one pair of hands to another, there’s PumPiX. A wearable and portable fashion gadget with a liquid sanitization dispenser to maintain cleanliness all day.

Sanitation starts with you, but the potential reach of a process as simple as one-two extends further than you can imagine. Keep sanitation simple with PumPiX.
