Don't Touch Germy Surfaces. Use Nudge, the New Antimicrobial EDC Tool from Exel CNC launching on Kickstarter

LONDON, April 28, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Nudge, the everyday carry tool designed to prevent touching germy surfaces launched today on Kickstarter. Aiming to help people avoid getting sick from the things they touch every day, this new copper tool is naturally antimicrobial, small and convenient to carry daily. Don't touch that surface. Nudge it.

Think about the number of things touched every day. From point-of-sale systems to door handles, bathroom stall latches and elevator buttons, people touch all kinds of germy surfaces every day. The coronavirus pandemic has only made people more aware of the ways viruses can spread through communities. People need a way to complete everyday tasks without the risk of getting sick.

Nudge is the non-touch hygienic helper for handles, switches, buttons and more. Designed in a sleek hook shape with rounded knobs, Nudge enables users to carry out everyday tasks without touching germy surfaces directly. As the only tool made from solid pure copper, which has proven antimicrobial properties, Nudge is the must-have everyday carry tool for everyone.

"Even before our world faced this rapidly spreading illness, we'd been looking at ways to improve the health and safety of our community," said Mark Hepworth, creator of Nudge. "We live in a germy world, and Nudge provides the perfect tool for a little extra protection against getting sick."

Consider the novel coronavirus. A recent study found that the COVID-19 virus can live on hard surfaces like plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours and cardboard for up to 24 hours.
Other viruses and bacteria, including those that cause influenza and the common cold, are also lurking on surfaces people touch daily. And because no one can control the hygiene of the person who touches a communal surface before them, it's important to take measures that are within each person's control. Using Nudge is one such measure.

The only hygienic touch tool made from pure copper, Nudge harnesses the natural antimicrobial properties found in copper. After rigorous testing, the United States Environmental Protection Agency registered copper alloys as antimicrobial public health materials. With regard to the coronavirus pandemic, studies have found the virus survives on copper surfaces for up to 4 hours. It's still recommended to wipe Nudge down with cleaning solutions after use, however, for extra protection.

Nudge is available to pre-order starting at $16, or £13 and is expected to ship anywhere in the world beginning in May. To pre-order, visit the campaign at
