The U.S. FDA has granted Breakthrough Device Designation for Awak Technologies' peritoneal dialysis (PD) device, an ultraportable PD system with patented sorbent technology. The device allows dialysis to be performed "on the go," as opposed to current dialysis procedures that require connection to large-size dialysis machines and restricted movement for the dialysis to complete. The designation was granted after reviewing pilot trial data from the Singapore General Hospital that demonstrated efficient removal of waste substances and no serious adverse events. This is a potentially disruptive technology in the kidney dialysis space; clients looking at portable solutions for dialysis technology should engage for collaborative opportunities.
