One-hand Washing

The Angel Faucet is specifically meant for those folks who have lost an arm. Apparently stats show that folks with this kind of impairment find it difficult towash their hand properly. The sensor-activated tap is integrated with a scrubbing pad that allows you to scrub and clean the single hand effectively.

The pad is made with soft silicon, and can be removed for cleaning. The flow of water through the tap stops when the user moves their hand away from the faucet outlet to the scrubbing pad.

Angel is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.

Designers: Yang Shuai, Cui Chengtao, Wang Shuai, Lin Shuo & Liu Shaolu

    A simple, yet brilliant idea.

    I saw a japanese company that manufactures a similar system but for shoes, that washes and cleans as you walk on (like a shoe mat). This is a great alternative design and could be very much useful for the disabled.

    Nice and Useful Concept. What about the downward flow like a normal tap?
