NxStage Medical Introduces New Products at 2013 American Society of Nephrology Meeting
Date:11/6/2013

LAWRENCE, Mass., Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NxStage Medical Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, is introducing  three new products at the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Annual Kidney Week 2013 Meeting in Atlanta, GA November 5 – 10, 2013 at booth #1129. The new offerings include the NxStage System One™ S, Nx2me Connected Health™, and the NxStage Dosing Calculator.

The NxStage System One S's higher dialysate flow rates allow for a wider range of flexible therapy options and a higher dose in the same time as it would take with the System One. The System One S allows nephrologists expanded possibilities to adjust the duration and frequency of patient prescriptions with greater flexibility than they have today.

Nx2me Connected Health leverages tablets, cloud computing and wireless communications. A key component of this solution is the Nx2me™ app, developed for the iPad® and used by patients at home. The app collects NxStage System One cycler data, as well as patient information such as blood pressure and weight. Patients can review, confirm, and transmit this data to their centers after each treatment. Dialysis center staff can access the transmitted data using the Nx2me™ Clinician Portal, gaining enhanced capabilities to review and follow treatment adherence and progress.

The new NxStage Dosing Calculator is an online tool that helps physicians develop prescriptions tailored to patients' clinical and lifestyle objectives. Using formulas from peer-reviewed publications, the Dosing Calculator quickly displays a wide range of therapy options to assist physicians in prescribing for a desired dose. This online tool is designed to reduce nephrologist time in calculating and assessing hundreds of possible prescription options to achieve clinical goals. The NxStage Dosing calculator, which is a free service, can be accessed directly at http://dosingcalculator.nxstage.com

"I'm very proud of our continued commitment to innovation and our ability to bring new products to market," said Jeffrey H. Burbank, Chief Executive Officer of NxStage Medical, Inc. "We are really excited about the potential of these enhancements to improve both ease of use of our therapy and efficiency for providers, clinicians, and most importantly, our patients."

About the NxStage System One
The NxStage System One is the first and only truly portable hemodialysis system cleared for home use by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Its simplicity and revolutionary size (just over a foot tall) are intended to allow convenient use in patients' homes and give patients the freedom to travel with their therapy. When combined with the NxStage Pureflow SL Dialysis Preparation System, patients are able to further simplify, using ordinary tap water to create dialysis fluid on demand. Unlike conventional hemodialysis systems, the System One 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 and at a medically appropriate treatment frequency. http://www.nxstage.com/.
