Home hemodialysis equipment options

Posted: Updated:

New, reliable and user-friendly machines and water treatment equipment are now available for home hemodialysis patients. These are easier to set up, clean, and disinfect. With some newer machines you have fewer supplies to store. Different systems work for different people, and you should work closely with your doctor to choose a dialysis method and the equipment that works best for you. It's important to note that some homes might require plumbing and/or electrical modifications to accommodate home hemodialysis equipment. These modifications might be covered by your insurance.
