What is NFMI Technology?

Intelligent Observation uses near-field magnetic induction (NFMI) technology to safely and accurately record every single hand hygiene compliance event in a healthcare facility 24/7/365.

Highly Accurate

NFMI uses a thin, low-power magnetic field to transmit communications between devices. NFMI is highly configurable and its signal is extremely accurate on a wearable device – something not possible with RFID solutions.

Safe & Secure

NFMI is FDA-approved for use in implantable human devices such as pacemakers or hearing aids. This technology is also used by the military for secure, accurate wireless communication.


NFMI is ultra-low power, pulling only one-fifth the power of Bluetooth. This allows for battery-operated devices with up to three-year life spans—no recharging required.
