Palm vein authentication technology

Palm vein authentication technology uses near infrared light to capture an image of the patterns of the veins that are hidden underneath the physical skin of users’ palm. Because of this near infrared light, users are not required to get in physical contact with the sensor of the scanning device, which further increases the life of the sensor and the entire palm vein scanning device. Due to the latest improvements in palm vein authentication technology, some scanning devices are capable of handling finger vein authentications, fingerprint authentications, palm vein authentications and iris authentications from within a single scanning unit.

Since palm vein authentication technology does not require users to get in the direct physical contact with the scanning devices, such devices are quite beneficial from the hygienic aspects.
