NxStage Patient Takes Dialysis Machine on Third Annual Patient Good-Will Tour
Date:9/18/2009

and a half hour dialysis sessions at a treatment center three days a week in 2006. These treatments often left him fatigued and made traveling difficult. Now, as a NxStage System One patient, Mr. Wells dialyzes on a more frequent basis and travels with his family.

In 2007, Mr. Wells and his wife took their two grandsons on a two-week road trip in his RV with the NxStage System One, spanning 3,700 miles and 11 states. In the summer of 2008, Mr. Wells expanded his tour to a 51-day excursion covering more than 12,500 miles and 37 states. Along the way, he dialyzed with a partner in his RV using the System One and visited 22 dialysis centers to speak to kidney patients about home hemodialysis.

"I'm excited to be able to share my love of football with my grandsons and make stops at dialysis centers between games," Wells said. "I am passionate about what this small, portable hemodialysis machine has done for me and the freedom it has given me and my family to travel together all over this country."

The NxStage System One is the first truly portable hemodialysis system cleared for home use by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Its simplicity and compact size are intended to allow ease of use and to give patients the opportunity to travel with their therapy with their doctor's approval. It plugs into standard electrical outlets and, unlike conventional hemodialysis systems, requires no special infrastructure to operate. Under the guidance of their physician, patients can use the NxStage System One, with their trained partners, where, how and when it best meets their needs, at home or on vacation.
