The IPaC Training Sleeve is a Shareable Wearable Sensor
Now there’s a measurable way to control undisciplined face touching and it’s a new type of personal protection equipment especially designed to add another layer of protection for healthcare workers, patients and the community in general.

Three Things to Know About Our Next Level
Infection Prevention & Control Sleeves
Our #1 goal is to get our novel IPaC Training Sleeves into every healthcare setting in the world because undisciplined touching within facial areas, is a known catalyst for spreading infections and self inoculations of harmful pathogens.
Numerous studies reveal that healthcare workers without masks touch their faces an average of 20 times or more per hour. Now that mask mandates are decreasing, IPaC Training Sleeves can give healthcare workers that discipline and extra confidence that they will be less likely to touch their faces unconsciously and possibly unsafely – especially in healthcare settings.
Our #2 goal is to get our novel IPaC Training Sleeves into every primary school setting in the world because if we can train our children from an early age about undisciplined and unsafe
facial contact, it will probably stay ingrained within them for a lifetime!
Schools are an excellent training opportunity because our hygienic washable training sleeve may be shared safely among groups while they attend classes. Affordability becomes less of an issue under these “group sharing circumstances” and this enables populations who may be lower income and/or in rural areas without easy access to healthcare, the access to critical IPC training they will remember.
The IPaC Training Sleeve
How it works:
The shareable wearable RFID sensor and training device works by detecting facial touching attempts before the actual touch. There may be audio, visual or vibration alerts at the attempt but during training, the alerts may be muted as the digital count continues so a user’s beginning median touch rate can be established. A mobile app and electronic best practices guide are companions to the device. Session data is not stored in vers 1.0. The device works from underneath clothing or, it may be worn exposed. This is a low risk digital health, general wellness product, and behavioral modification is the goal.
We anticipate that it will become standard procedure for all healthcare workers to have received IPaC Sleeve training, possibly to the point of certifications and re-certifications over time. Another layer of protection. This is real time digital health in action that fits the FDA definition of a “low risk general wellness product”.
The quantifiable impact of face touching or the lack of, has thus far been an unknown. At a minimum, the IPaC Training Sleeve can provide studies and researchers with potential control groups – the trained vs the untrained, the certified vs the uncertified, and so on.
