The Affordable Dialysis System

Ellen Medical Devices

Millions of people die unnecessarily every year because they cannot access treatment for kidney failure. The Affordable Dialysis System recognizes that a key impediment to dialysis is lack of cheap, sterile water in places with an unreliable electricity supply and potentially contaminated water sources. Our portable distiller transforms local potable water to medical grade sterile water which is used to prepare peritoneal dialysis bags at the point of care. The innovative peritoneal dialysis system is not only much cheaper to deliver than standard hemodialysis but also eliminates the logistics costs of transporting thousands of bags of fluid to remote locations.
