Abstract

Portable dialysis devices enable dialysis patients to dialyse at home, thereby enhancing their mobility and autonomy. The development of a strategy to facilitate re-use of dialysate is crucial in the deployment of these devices. In the Netherlands, clinical trials are currently prepared involving a 10 kg portable haemodialysis device and a 10 kg portable system for continuous flow peritoneal dialysis, respectively.
