PATRON / peritoneal dialysis-cycler

PATRON
PATRON

iF concept design award

iF concept design award

Patron is an innovative APD-cycler-system, specially designed for home dialysis and vacations. The Patron-cycler is equipped with UV-disinfection and is also able to connect all tubes and bags automatically. The risk of infection during the treatment is therefore reduced considerably. The dialysis-fluid is heated online without the complicated use of heating bags or -devices. On an emotional level Patron allows a more unconstrained handling of the disease through dialysis without a stigmatizing outer appearance.
