Cyclean: a bus/train handle that can prevent the transfer of germs with its internal cleaning function

The handles on public buses and trains can pose health risks due to the possibility of germs being transferred to the hands. Cyclean reinvents the typical handle with a built-in cleaning function. The handle strap can be rotated through a small plastic chamber that contains a rough sponge, a cleaning and disinfecting agent, and rollers. The handle strap can be cleaned by pulling down on one side of the loop to feed it into the chamber. The rollers clean and disinfect the strap as it is fed through. The strap emerges from the chamber clean. The sponge can be replaced and the cleaning agent can be refilled.
