Lysis / Hemodialysis Equipment

Lysis
Lysis

The patient with renal failure suffer from intense hours of weekly treatment, supporting their survival on dialysis equipment. This equipment is responsible for all functions of the kidneys, filtering the blood and returning it clean to the patient. The group, in research, realized that the existing equipments are an optimal functional performance, but very bad care with the symbolic aspects of products: the capillaries through which blood flows are exposed, there is a complete disorder of the elements and the interface is complex and unintuitive . The redesign of the equipment then becomes our design challenge.
