This product represents an upgrade to the existing bedside cabinets previously supplied and operated by Pers Japan at Tokyo University Hospital. By simply hovering a finger over it, the drawer can be locked and unlocked without the need for physical keys. This frees patients from the concerns of losing keys, the risk of theft, and the inconvenience of having to carry keys around. We hope that this will enable patients to enjoy a more secure and comfortable hospital stay. The Tokyo University Hospital adopted the product with the aim of providing a safer and more comfortable environment for patients.

The introduction of finger vein authentication, known for its higher accuracy among biometric authentication methods, is expected to further enhance hospital security and prevent incidents proactively, thus reducing the burden of related tasks for the hospital. mofiria will continue to collaborate with Pers Japan to promote the widespread use of this product, enhancing both safety and convenience for hospitals and patients.

※1 Finger Vein Authentication: Finger vein authentication is a type of biometric authentication that verifies an individual based on the vein patterns in their finger. Unlike other biometric authentications that rely on the surface of the skin, this method uses veins inside the body, making it extremely difficult to impersonate or forge. Additionally, it is less affected by conditions such as wetness, roughness, or aging, making it one of the most secure biometric authentications and gaining significant attention.
