Chronic Kidney Disease affects millions of people all around the globe and this number is increasing every year. The available treatments right now are dialisys - which is very expensive and uncomfortable for the patient, given the amount of time and regularity they need to be doing the treatment next to the machine - and kidney transplant. Kidney transplant is not only risky but it aldo takes much waiting time for a donor (and many times there is none), and people end up dying, since the disease is fatal in its final stage.
We bring an improved option. The filter we want to apply is a ESA patent used to filter fuel in rocketships and we want to use it in chronic kidney disease patients. The goal is to apply it in the patients' organism, in the blood vessels, right before the blood reaches the failing kidney, and filter it. the filter is made of titanium and is 3D printed, which means we can print it any size we want. Also, it is a single piece with no joints and ot doesn't affect ...

Also, it is a single piece with no joints and ot doesn't affect the blood pressure at all. We are still studying its viability, we only have the idea yet, but will meet with teams of doctors and engineers, as well as the filter's makers to get an idea of the details behind and find out how we can make it work.
