Renal Care Solutions (RCS) business unit of Medtronic established Medtronic India Development Centre (MIDC) in Bangalore in 2013, to develop key aspects of the RCS product portfolio. One of the key projects is a portable hemodialysis system. It is specifically suited to address the barriers that prevent wider availability of therapy for patients with end-stage renal disease in emerging economies. This system will include features such as portability, reduced water consumption, and a state-of-the art graphical user interface. The new portable hemodialysis system offers a unique product offering that not only provides strong patient benefits but also helps significantly improve access to the hemodialysis solution to patients in key emerging markets like India.
