PalmSecure Hand Placement Guide    



  • Unique - vein patterns are unique to individuals and contain detailed characteristics(1)
  • Accurate - advanced matching algorithms produce high level of accuracy(2)
  • Universal Applicability - technology can be used by virtually everyone
  • Versatile - readily deployable to wide range of applications
  • Hygienic - contact-less user interface addresses hygiene concerns
  • Non-invasive - simple to use user interface promotes high level of user acceptance
  • Reliable - field proven technology with built-in forgery protection
  1. Based on research to date by Fujitsu.
  2. Internal research by Fujitsu resulted in a false acceptance rate of less than 0.00008% and a false rejection rate of only 0.01%. False acceptance rate is a rate at which someone other than the actual person is falsely recognized. False rejection rate is a rate at which the actual person is not recognized accurately.
