Out of the approximately 100,000 people on the waiting list, there are only enough kidneys for 20% of patients. That leaves 80% of patients with kidney failure on the line (and on your bottom line).
The only hope for the 80% that don’t get a kidney is dialysis, which isn’t pleasant. It’s expensive for both clients, insurances, and facilities alike. It’s also disruptive to the patient’s everyday lives. Needless to say, dialysis could be better.
Will it get better? People are working on it, but only time will tell. Learn about the medical professionals, entrepreneurs, and scientists trying to improve dialysis technology below.
