An innovative device for hemodialysis monitoring was developed at the University of Warsaw. Thanks to it, you can follow the course of the procedure on an ongoing basis. Therapy can be more effective and safer. Will it prove to be a breakthrough in hemodialysis monitoring?
Scientists from the University of Warsaw have developed a device for hemodialysis monitoring, which will minimize the phenomenon of under-dialysis in patients, and for some patients it will shorten the time of the procedure.
We are proud to announce that by the decision of the jury of the Entrepreneur of the Year competition of the University of Warsaw, Microanalysis was awarded in the Innovator / Innovation of the Year category. It was the only award in this category.
We invite you to watch the report from the award ceremony of the 3rd edition of the Entrepreneur of the Year UW competition, which took place on November 21, 2019 in the building of the Old University of Warsaw Library. The material was prepared for the Center of Entrepreneurship of the Faculty of Management at the University of Warsaw.
The prototype of the device is at the stage of intensive tests carried out in cooperation with the Medical University of Warsaw. The unattended analyzer continuously measures the toxins removed from the patient’s body in the sub-dialysis fluid. Thanks to this, the method of operation is completely non-invasive for the patient. Thanks to the invention, the doctor and staff operating the hemodialysis machines (the so-called artificial kidneys) can track the current progress of the procedure and obtain quantitative information on the effectiveness of the therapy, which allows to decide on the optimal time of treatment completion (shortening or extending the procedure), as well as checking whether the procedure itself is going well and respond appropriately.
