Home HD is a home hemodialysis unit that allows patients with chronic kidney failure to treat themselves in the comfort of their homes at any time. This means enhanced quality of life, freedom and independence. As opposed to traditional machines which are for clinic use and staff handling, Home HD is designed for the patient as the main user. A one click-on disposable pack simplifies set up and saves time, as well as eliminating error probability. The interface indicates steps to follow in an intuitive way. During treatment the disposables are hidden away from visitors, which creates a non-stigmatizing, lifestyle fitting environment.
