In order to improve the quality of life of dialysis patients, I developed a dialysis unit and a concept for a partnerless home haemodialysis, which comprises that patients daily conduct their dialysis at home while being monitored by a telemedicine centre. The dialysis unit is designed in such a way that it is mobile on journeys and that its high degree of usability reduces the fear of operating errors. Home haemodialysis offers patients not only a self-determined, independent, and flexible form of dialysis but is also a way of dealing with the growing number of dialysis patients and the probable increase in costs for the healthcare systems.
