Abstract
(EN) Method for the disinfection and the quality control of the disinfection of the hands of a user comprising the steps of: - dispensing a predetermined amount of the mixture of a disinfectant substance and a light reflection modifying substance on the hands to be disinfected, - allowing the user to smear and rub the mixture on his/her hands, - inserting the hands one after the other into an imaging compartment (11) of an apparatus (10) for disinfection qulity control; - illuminating the inserted hand with light sources (14) emitting light having a predetermined spectral distribution and intensity; - recording the image of the hand (9) from both sides by cameras (16); - processing the recorded image to provide distinction between areas of the hand contacted and non-contacted by the mixture, wherein the light reflection modifying substance is a substance that absorbs light in at least a predetermined wavelength range which is added to the disinfectant substance in an amount that decreases light absorption of areas treated by the mixture and retains at the same time disinfectant properties; the light source emits light to cover the predetermined range and the cameras have sensitivity in that range, furthermore, in the processing step areas of the hand (9) are made brighter which were not contacted previously by the mixture.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de désinfection et de contrôle qualité de la désinfection des mains d'un utilisateur, comprenant les étapes consistant à : distribuer une quantité prédéterminée du mélange d'une substance désinfectante et d'une substance modifiant la réflexion de la lumière sur les mains à désinfecter ; permettre à l'utilisateur d'étaler et de frotter le mélange sur ses mains ; introduire les mains l'une après l'autre dans un compartiment d'imagerie (11) d'un appareil (10) pour un contrôle qualité de la désinfection ; éclairer la main introduite avec des sources de lumière (14) qui émettent de la lumière ayant une distribution spectrale et une intensité prédéterminées ; enregistrer l'image de la main (9) depuis les deux côtés par des appareils photographiques (16) ; traiter l'image enregistrée afin d'obtenir une distinction entre les zones de la main mises en contact et non mises en contact avec le mélange. La substance modifiant la réflexion de lumière est une substance qui absorbe la lumière dans au moins une plage de longueurs d'onde prédéterminée et qui est ajoutée à la substance désinfectante en une quantité qui diminue l'absorption de la lumière par les zones traitées par le mélange et conserve en même temps des propriétés désinfectantes. La source de lumière émet de la lumière pour couvrir la plage prédéterminée et les appareils photographiques ont une sensibilité dans cette plage. De plus, dans l'étape de traitement, les zones de la main (9) qui n'ont pas été mises en contact précédemment avec le mélange sont rendues plus lumineuses.
