A small, lightweight dialysis machine is small enough to be wearable, which could allow sufferers of renal disease to have access to continual dialysis and reduce the need for visits to a clinic.
The machine is the size of a woman's handbag and can easily be worn by the patient. The device uses a disposable cartridge that needs to be changed up to 3 times a day, although the fluid solution only needs replacing once a month. Since so little fluid is required, the cost to patients and treatment centers should be reduced.
Continual dialysis also ensures that toxins do not have a chance to build up and allows for overall better health.
