Think about countries around the world with no water security...10M people would die every year just because they don't have access to the water for dialysis. That's why it's important our technology uses 100X water.
On average, a year of dialysis of each patient costs upwards of $82,000 in the United States

We take our kidneys for granted. These organs remove waste, salts, and excess water, and we get to expel them from our body through urination. When you have kidney failure–like over 660,000 adults in the US–you become a dialysis patient, and have to drive into a clinic every other day to get hooked up to a gigantic machine that filters your blood for you. This can cost anywhere between $80,000 to $140,000 per patient per year. If only there was a way to have a portable, at-home kidney that you can take with you anywhere.

Qidni is making their own artificial kidneys, connected to the cloud, so they can enable independent dialysis providers to serve millions of patients without owning any clinics. Their QGel adsorbent can perform dialysis with 100X less water, and with significant cost savings. Qidni has already demonstrated the portability and viability of their artificial kidneys on a fully nephrectomized sheep (no kidneys). It survived, and the “kidneys” filtered out even more urea than is normally done in a typical dialysis session in a clinic.
