The Hon Greg Hunt, Federal Minister For Health.
Aussies Tethered to their Home Kidney Machines.
Currently our dialysis machines are as tall and hugely heavier than I am. WE ask the Minister to approve the above Quanta SC + kidney dialysis machines for use in homes in Australia.
Why is this important?
Well over 1,000 Kidney Dialysis Home Patients are unable to move away from their home clunky machines for 5 hours, three days a week, unless they book for another one elsewhere. A Quanta SC + machine is portable, weighs 32 kg and is the size of a cash register. It is portable and fits in a car boot.
Kidney home patients would have the freedom to move away from home at will. I would love to go camping after six years of deprivation so far.
