Hewlett-PackardAn interesting article over at Crave reports that Hewlett-Packard is licensing its inkjet technology for use in in-home dialysis machines. Home Dialysis Plus will use HP’s “fluid management” technology used in inkjet printers to mix tap water and concentrated dialysis solution at a level customized for patients that can be administered at home rather than at a treatment center. Dialysis solution will be made available in cartridges similar to the inkjet cartridges we find in many consumer inkjet printers.

Home Dialysis Plus is still about 18 – 24 months away from having a completed product, and then once complete, it will still have to pass FDA testing.

This is very cool implementation of existing technology.
