Dialysis machines cleanse the blood of toxins. Sterilisers eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms.
In chronic kidney failure, the kidneys are no longer able to filter metabolic waste products and excess water out of the blood and excrete them in the urine. Dialysis therapy can be performed in dialysis centers or at home with home dialysis machines.
The costs for the conversion of the private dialysis room can be covered by the Integration Office in the case of recognised severe disability, if this is associated with the preservation of the job.
