    A wearable artificial kidney could be developed as a viable, new dialysis technology that allows patients to be mobile and untethered during treatment, results of a US Food and Drug Administration-authorised clinical trial suggest.

    The technology may become an alternative to conventional hemodialysis for people with end-stage kidney disease.

    This is music to my ears! I am diabetic and do not want to have dialysis at any point in my disease. But to know that I could have a device that I could wear would make the treatment more palatable should I have to have it. This is the first I have heard of this new technology. Thank you for the information.
