In rural regions of the world, patients with kidney failure may be rejected for home dialysis because their local water sources are not sanitary enough or don't meet dialysis water standards. Well water for example, is often over-concentrated with certain solutes that can't be removed through water purification systems or may not meet the standards set for quality of water for dialysis.
A consistent electrical source is also a critical resource for performing dialysis in any setting. In certain parts of the world, a stable electrical source is not always available or is completely unavailable. In those regions, readily available access to dialysis is difficult or simply impossible. Qidni’s technology can ignore these barriers and deliver dialysis to these underserved populations.

A natural disaster can create a shortage in resources which can temporarily halt dialysis. In the United States and around the world, we have observed a steady increase of extreme weather events that are making electric shortages and power failures a more common occurrence. These events can leave thousands of patients without treatment. Missing even a single dialysis session can be detrimental to a patient’s health and livelihood, thereby putting them in a highly vulnerable state.

The availability of blood purification in the battlefield can be critical, especially during a life-threatening situation. The large volumes of purified water, lack of electricity and the large size of commercial dialysis machines restrict availability of dialysis in the battlefield. Qidni offers a solution that bypasses all of these barriers. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know more for licensing, partnership or distribution.
The Qidni/D, in comparison to other devices, can be more effective and can be easily used in emergency settings. If a patient requires blood purification during an emergency situation, they must be transported to a facility that is capable of dialyzing the patient. This is undesirable in an emergency, where time is of the essence. Every device in the current dialysis market either lacks the portability or the battery-power capability to be brought into an ambulance. Contact us at email@example.com to know more about our technology and its usage in emergency situations.
Similar to the rural regions of the world, satellite dialysis units deal with similar issues such as water supply and sewage lines and electricity. Expansion of satellite dialysis units highly depends on the availability of certain infrastructure such as high quality water and sewage lines, electricity and communication lines. Patients living in regions where such infrastructure is not available would have to frequently travel long distances to dialysis clinics or choose home dialysis, which they may not qualify for in the first place. Qidni’s technology can remove the need for current dialysis infrastructure. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know more how you can expand your satelite dialysis units using Qidni technology.
As home dialysis is becoming an increasingly popular option for dialysis, a significant number of patients can be rejected for this type of treatment. Reasons for this include the following:
Using bagged dialysis over long term in such a situation may not be economical and also the patient may not have room for storage of large quantities of bagged dialysate. Qidni’s technology can qualify some of those patients for home dialysis, as it relies on minimal resources and is fully miniaturized.

Currently, setting up a dialysis center would require a significant amount of upfront capital investment. With Qidni technology, a dialysis clinic can be set up anywhere in the world in a day. Qidni’s dialysis machines and supplies can be shipped to a clinic and be set up in a matter of minutes. No water purification system would be needed to be installed.

The COVID-19 pandemic put end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients in a significantly vulnerable position. Simply having ESRD puts a patient in the high risk category of having severe COVID-19. The majority of these patients have to receive treatment in a dialysis unit, where there are rows of patients being dialyzed simultaneously. As a result, the transmission of COVID-19 is often increased in these settings, and it is simply not feasible for these patients to remain sheltered in place. Countries with inadequate healthcare infrastructure are particularly vulnerable to collapsing from the effects of COVID-19. In countries where very severe outbreaks have occurred, dialysis clinics have been required to temporarily shut down. This leaves an increasing burden on those healthcare systems and puts patients at further risk of mortality.
In any pandemic situation, Qidni’s technology can allow patients to effectively maintain social distance and dialyze from their homes, without the need to frequently visit a clinic. Contact us at email@example.com to know more about the use of Qidni dialysis technology in pandemics.
Qidni’s platform blood purification technology can potentially be used for selective removal of other solutes and molecules from large volumes of whole blood. We anticipate our technology will have applications in other blood purification markets as well. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know more for licensing or partnership.
