The novel patient assist device for Peritoneal dialysis
PeriSafe® is a novel patient assist device for the safe and easy connection in Peritoneal Dialysis. It's addressing the two major complications in PD connection: the infection risk and the complexity of the therapy handling.
PeriSafe® is the first device that connects the transfer set and the dialysis bag system inside of a protected area. The manual contact of the patient with the open transfer set is prevented, and breaking the frangible or clamping the tubes can simply be performed by pushing a button.
How it works
The PeriSafe® system removes the old protective cap and the pullring, connects transfer set and dialysis bag system and guides the patient through the therapy with buttons. The buttons replace the manual breaking of the frangible and the clamping of the dialysis tubes. After the dialysis treatment, the transfer set is deconnected from the dialysis bag system and protected with a new protective cap. All the steps described are performed inside of the protected device.

Due to the proper guidance of the patient and the standardized procedure, the therapy becomes more intuitive, and could dispel possible doubts of the patient.
The reliable PeriSafe® assistant device, will take the patients by the hand, and guide them through the therapy. This would allow patients, that are not eligible today, to perform dialysis at home (e.g. visual impairment).
PeriSafe® can help patients to familiarize with the therapy process very quickly. This would increase the patient's confidence, and would prevent them from leaving the therapy.
The most delicate therapy step, the manual connection of the transfer set and the dialysis bag system, is performed inside of the protected device. This could lead to an infection decrease.
Comfort family care
By reducing the complexity of the therapy, PeriSafe® could also help relatives and nurses in their daily assistance, and provide them with the needed encouragement.
The standardization and the simplified handling could lead to an easier therapy learning and could reduce the training time for the patient, the relatives and nurses.

The Peritoneal Dialysis Infection Diagnostic
Periplex is a simple, 5 minute point-of-care test for home and professional use as an aid to diagnosis of infections in patients receving Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) treatment. The test detects two recognised markers of infection, Matrix MetalloProteinase-8 (MMP-8) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6) in a lateral flow assay using peritoneal dialysate taken from the waste bag.
Early detection will give PD patients warning of an infection, prompting them to seek medical assistance. Early treatment is known to result in better control of infection and helps prevent infection-related damage to the peritoneal membrane.
PERiPLEX® can be used in a variety of situations to provide reassurance to PD patients, particularly for new PD users, or for patients who have previously had peritonitis.
The PERiPLEX technology was developed following a collaborative project with Cardiff University Medical School, funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR).
How it works

Results are easy to interpret. An infection is indicated by the presence of either 2 or 3 lines in the device window. A single control line indicates no infection is present.
