The portable kidney

The first version of the Neokidney will be a portable haemodialysis machine that can regenerate a limited amount of dialysate during a dialysis treatment. The Neokidney 1.0 will be the first actually portable haemodialysis machine for daily use, and will require only a limited amount of dialysate.

The Neokidney offers a platform for continuous development. Already, steps are being made towards realising the second generation of the portable kidney. Better monitoring and measuring during dialysis are in development, together with TNO. We are also investigating the possibility of applying polymer membranes with combined filtration and absorption for more effective dialysis.
