Toward an era in which higher-quality treatment is required of dialysis therapy
In 1967, dialysis therapy was covered by insurance, and then the medical care system was organized to relieve the burden of expenses. This resulted in an increased number of patients that received dialysis therapy. Accordingly, dialysis facilities also increased and the need for multi-person equipment to save the initial cost grew. Coping with flexibly in changing needs, we have developed a wide variety of products.
From the 1980s until now, higher-quality treatment has been consistently required of dialysis therapy. We are still aiming to advance equipment and instruments further by using the latest technology and up-to-date materials so that patients will receive treatment more safely and comfortably, and hospitals can provide safe, accurate, and laborsaving treatment.
With the hope of offering “clean dialysis liquid” to patients
We desire that patients receiving dialysis therapy will live a comfortable life - In the 1990s, the concept of treatment in consideration of patients' “quality of life” and alleviation of the burden of medical service workers engaging in field therapy was generated.
At that time, either of two types of undiluted dialysis liquid solutions - A and B - were transferred to the tank, or the undiluted solution A is transferred to the tank and powdered B solution is dissolved in the tank. However, the liquid had problems with shipping costs and storage space, and the handling of the heavy bottles was a stumbling block. When transferring to the tank or adding powdered B solution to the tank, impurities may be mixed in due to contact with the outside air.
With the hope to “offer clean dialysis liquid to patients” and “alleviate the burden of staff” in the medical care field, in 1997 we developed the D-dry melting unit “DAD-30” and the powdered artificial kidney dialysis agent “D-dry 2.5 and D-dry 3.0” in bottles on our own. Based on original ideas and technological capabilities, this machine is capable of shielding against outside air by opening the bottle of powder inside the tank in a closed circuit. In addition, the burden of field workers was reduced significantly by automating all processes for undiluted solution preparation.
