Fresenius Medical Care uses virtual reality technology to train patients for home dialysis

In peritoneal dialysis, which is used by about 11 percent of the approximately 3.7 million dialysis patients worldwide, the lining of the patient’s abdominal cavity – the peritoneum – acts as the filter for cleaning the blood. To learn how to correctly use Fresenius Medical Care’s stay•safe System for continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), home dialysis patients undergo comprehensive training in a dialysis clinic. stay•safe MyTraining VR is now supporting this training with the VR technology. The hardware comprises VR glasses and an easy-to-use controller. In various training modules, patients learn all aspects of the dialysis process, including hygiene procedures, preparation and post-therapy steps, bag-changing and operation of the stay•safe DISC.
