Home Hemodialysis Machine

I am wondering if there is any new information on the latest home hemodialysis machine in the market? I am interested to find out about those that are already available? Or even products are currently in trials.

The NxStage System One (NxStage) has been in use by patients for several years.

The Tablo (Outset Medical) was fairly recently approved by the FDA in the U.S.

Baxter was developing a machine called Vivia, but decided not to pursue development.

Home Dialysis Central has information about what’s in the pipeline related to dialysis. It includes more than just machines.

Here’s info on an implantable bioartificial kidney:

There have been clinical trials in UK and Seattle, WA with the wearable artificial kidney:
UK: https://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT00454974
US: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02280005

I owned and operated a dialysis company up until Jan 31 this year. We have numerous NXstage system1 machines for sale if you know anybody interested or in need. We would love to help the community.

U.S. patients’ dialysis machines are provided by dialysis clinics with reimbursement from public and private payers. Did you try to sell the machines to whoever bought your dialysis company or try to sell them back to NxStage? You might want to post your message to the HD discussions for professionals to see if their employers might want to buy used machines after they are cleaned, disinfected, and assured to operate as expected.

There are organizations that accept donations of dialysis equipment, which they provide to people in other countries who have limited access to dialysis. You can find these organizations using Google. That said, here’s a position statement by the International Society of Nephrology about donating equipment and receiving donated equipment.

The QuantaSC+ is being trialled in the UK.

Like the NXstage its still not fully portable, but significant smaller than the NXstage.

Dori Schatell from MEI is at the Annual Dialysis Conference where they talked about and/or displayed various machines including the Quanta. She posted a slide showing the manufacturer of the Quanta is working with the FDA now and the machine may be available in the U.S. in the next couple of years.

How much for the nxstage machine

Hi How much for the dialysus machine. I would like to bring it home to the philippines

It’s not as easy to just buy a dialysis machine for someone to do dialysis. People performing dialysis require several weeks of training on how to do dialysis. Machines require regular maintenance and hemodialysis machines require water treatment and regular testing of the water. People who do dialysis need to be able to get all kinds of supplies and if a machine breaks you have to be able to get parts and fix the machine.

Some dialysis manufacturers have a presence in the Philippines.
