purifier / mobile peritoneal dialysis


The portable system offers peritoneal dialysis patients a carefree approach to their illness. Which has been a time-consuming process and a hinderance in everyday-live, whether in the private live or at work, is now fully automated. The simplicity of operating frees the affected persons of the fear to take responsibility. The peristaltic pump transports the dialysate through the body without using an notificable infusion stand. This process equals the natural cleaning of an operating kidney. The flexible design ensures an ideal wearing comfort underneath the clothes. The waterproof subshell is made from elastomer and adapts to any bodyshape.
