ICT-enabled Wearable Artificial Kidney and Personal Renal Care System

Objective

Renal patients can stay at home with wearable, artificial kidney.

NEPHRON+ aims to provide a major leap forward in renal care: The project experts are developing a wearable artificial kidney for on-body blood purification - a next generation, integrated solution for personalized treatment and management of patients with chronic renal failure.

The wearable, artificial kidney could be an ideal solution for continuous dialysis outside the hospital: It offers better treatment and better blood clearance, while patients can stay mobile and active in social and economic life.

The blood treatment can be adjusted to personal parameters and can be remotely controlled by clinical specialists: The system allows for real-time, continuous, multiparametric (tele) monitoring of both the patient and the device via innovative sensors. The continuous data collection allows for early detection of anomalies and trend analysis on the health status of the patient, offering learning curves for improved treatment.
