Fresenius Medical Care, a provider of dialysis products and services, has launched 2008K@home hemodialysis delivery system in North America.

The 2008K@home machine is constructed on the basis of 2008 series hemodialysis machine platform.

The hemodialysis machine comes with a simple user-interface that incorporates an on-screen tutorial to walk the user through set-up, treatment, and disconnection from therapy.

Fresenius Medical Care chief medical and regulatory affairs Officer Jose Diaz-Buxo said the 2008K@home provides patients with a smaller version of the in-center machine and allows flexibility to deliver a customized physician’s dialysis prescription for each patient, meeting the patient’s medical needs and suiting their lifestyle.
