Description

The Oxfam Handwashing Stand is the result of six years of design, refinement and field trials to provide a low cost, easy-to-assemble, user friendly hand washing facility that can be installed in a first phase response to support sanitation. The original idea was generated by GCSE pupils at Beech Grove Academy, and the stand was designed by Matt White from SPARK Product Creation, on contract to Oxfam, assisted by advisors from the Royal College of Art and Design and a behaviour specialist from Behavioural Architects UK. It is manufactured by Dunster House, rotationally moulded in high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It can provide over 200 hand washes per fill with chambers for both clean and soapy water, the tanks embossed to assist people with impaired sight. The dispenser is a one-touch tap to conserve resources and in reducing wasteage, mitigate the risk of mosquitoes. The bright coloured design with integrated mirrors was found to both attract and engage users and there are flat surfaces on the four sides of the tank to put information, education and communication material. There are two stations, each with a hook to hang personal items. Elevated, the adjustable tripod legs ensure that adults, children and people with physical impairments can all easily manoeuvre to wash their hands.
