Newly Available Home Kidney Dialysis

Once had a friend that spent much of his time at a clinic receiving dialysis for his failing kidneys. He would have done anything for an invention like this.

For those of you going through this tedious procedure, it might help if you looked into this improvement.

Most dialysis patients require four-hour treatments three times per week at a clinic. The HD Plus technology can be used at home and is gentler than traditional dialysis.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., who’s steered $45 million in federal money to the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, called the investment a “major victory for the future of nanotechnology and for the Oregon economy.”

“This commitment by Warburg Pincus in the technology developed by HD+ is a tremendous advance for kidney dialysis patients and for the cause of lowering the costs of health care,” Wyden said in a news release. “It is also a victory for nanotech jobs, since HD+ plans to develop its their new portable dialysis system right here in Oregon.”
