The Affordable Dialysis System by Ellen Medical
It’s an invention that could save millions of lives each year and transform the way kidney disease is treated around the world. After a year-long global quest, the world’s first low cost dialysis system was unveiled on World Kidney Day, 10 March 2016.
Vincent Garvey was awarded the Affordable Dialysis Prize and took home US$100,000 for his innovative design. Garvey’s dialysis system can fit into a small suitcase and uses a standard solar panel to power a highly efficient, miniature distiller capable of producing pure water from any source.
