The biocompatible NFC implant allows consumers to make contactless payments with their hand • NFCW

PRACTICE: The NFC device is implanted under the skin of a user for contactless payment on a terminal

Consumers in the European Union and the United Kingdom can now make contactless payments using an NFC implant in the hand that meets ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards.

The battery-less implant is integrated under the user’s skin and is linked to a preloaded online account, allowing the user to make contactless payments anywhere “popular credit or debit cards” are accepted.

“The Walletmor payment implant is a small device, the size of a safety pin and about half a millimeter thick, consisting of an integrated circuit and a metal sheath that acts as an antenna. , enclosed in an airtight bio-box, “said the British-Polish. start-up that developed the device explains.

“Biopolymer – technically speaking – is the so-called medical plastic for the production of medical devices, which has current biocompatibility certificates confirming compliance with ISO 10993.”

“It is important to note that the implant is a passive device and does not have its own power source,” adds Walletmor.

“It does not generate radio waves on its own and can only be activated with a contactless payment terminal, and only at a very short distance. It is impossible to follow someone with a Walletmor implant.

Once they have ordered the NFC payment implant, users open and add funds to an account on the European iCard platform before having the device implanted in a hospital, clinic or aesthetic medicine laboratory that offers the service.

“The implantation is painless and only takes 15 minutes,” says Walletmor.
