Making its portable haemodialysis system available beyond hospital and clinic settings, NxStage Medical has gained US FDA 510(k) clearance to market its System One device for daily home use. Claimed by the Lawrence, Massachusetts firm to be the smallest commercially available haemodialysis device, System One plugs into standard electrical outlets and requires no special infrastructure to operate, allowing its use also by patients who want to travel. There is a growing body of literature supporting the clinical benefits of more frequent dialysis, often administered in the home, the company noted.
