I am looking for examples of the various dialysis machines being used for home use around the globe. Name of machine and date started therapy will suffice.

I'm sure about every model is being used at home somewhere. Why may I ask?

Canadian GST tax law states that a dialysis machine that "can be used" in residence (home) is zero-rated (taxable at a zero rate). If it can be proved that all hemodialysis machines can be used in the home then all parts and accessories can be zero rated as well. This would make the dialyzers and other accessories cost less to the patients and customers.

Fresenius 2008K@ Home Version; much smaller version of the 2008K used in the Main Clinics. Great to work on and use; if you set up the propper RO/Water Treatment set-up.

NB, Canada
