NxStage Congratulates Home Dialyzors United for Securing Policies through the US Department of Transportation to Improve the Air Travel Experience for Home Dialyzors
Date:7/22/2013

ling dialysis patients often faced hurdles with the airlines.  At a minimum, the check-in process could be frustrating and long. Some patients were charged exorbitant fees while some were even denied being allowed to board the plane at all. This accomplishment by the HDU organization will help ease the financial burden and stress home dialyzors used to face when traveling on commercial airlines

A copy of the guidance with frequently asked questions can be found on the Department of Transportation website at http://www.dot.gov/sites/dot.dev/files/docs/Portable_Dialysis_Machine_Notice.pdf.  Additional hints to help with travel with the NxStage® System One™ are available at  http://www.nxstage.com/homehemodialysis/products/travel.

Joe Turk, President of North America at NxStage, added his congratulations to HDU saying, "This transportation update is an important victory for HDU and for patients on home dialysis around the country. NxStage acknowledges and congratulates HDU founder Rich Berkowitz for his dedication to increasing access to home dialysis and to improving the quality of experiences for patients once they choose to dialyze at home."
