Dialysis market demands a truly portable device
The treatment of kidney failure is a growing issue in public health policies. It is one of the main sources of healthcare costs in western societies with over $40 Bio spent in 2020 only in the United States, while there is an annual growth of 6% of kidney patients dependent on dialysis worldwide.
Jérôme Augustin, Chief Executive Officer of Nextkidney BV: “The continued growth of the global dialysis market demands for a device that addresses current issues of manpower, logistics and patients’ quality of life. The Neokidney™ does this by enabling patients to perform dialysis treatments any place at any time, not hampered by logistics of fluids or infrastructure, enabling patients to longer stay connected to society and their professional lives”.
