Creating a paradigm shift in renal care
Quanta Dialysis Technologies, today announces that the Company will be exhibiting at the 54th European Renal Association - European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) Congress which runs from Saturday 3rd June to Tuesday 6th June at the IFEMA Conference Centre in Madrid, Spain at booth number 3.135. Quanta will be showcasing SC+, its easy-to-use, compact, haemodialysis system, offering high performance comparable to conventional devices and compatibility with traditional treatment regimens typically used in-centre. SC+ has been designed to provide flexibility and convenience to dialysis patients empowering them to regain control of their lives.
Quanta Dialysis Technologies is very excited to become part of the global kidney community as it approaches the 2018 commercial launch of its new haemodialysis system -the SC+. Over 64,000 people in the UK are currently being treated for end-stage renal disease and more than 24,000 undergo dialysis treatment to keep them alive. Quanta recognises that what most dialysis patients want is to be able to focus on their families, their work and their lives. Managing dialysis treatment can make that very challenging so there was clearly a need for a machine that is compact and easy to use, enabling greater flexibility and patient independence.
As I write this I am sitting in the desert outside Dubai, about to start a busy day of fun, jumping out of aeroplanes and horse riding in the sand dunes. The only reason I am here now, pursuing life with a passion and living very happily and healthily is because of home dialysis. 20 year's ago my life was turned upside down by an aggressive onset of FSGS. I spent 18 months in Guy's Hospital undergoing treatment including steroids and chemotherapy plus an array of horrible complications. At 14 years old I had my kidneys removed and immediately opted to dialyse myself at home on overnight APD.
