Momentum is rising for patients with chronic kidney disease to be treated with hemodialysis in the comfort of their own home as opposed to traveling several days a week to a freestanding clinic. Manufacturers, government and payers are paving the way for a higher home-therapy adoption rate. That said, many patients remain unsuitable for home care and the large volume of water needed to operate hemodialysis can be logistically daunting.
The UK company recently finished a pilot trial of the SC+ personal dialysis system in France, as part of its plan to launch it in Europe by the end of 2018 and earn US FDA clearance in 2019.
