  • Publication number: 20200405938
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an apparatus for regenerating a dialysis solution, wherein the apparatus has a first circuit and a second circuit, with the first circuit having a container for receiving the consumed dialysis solution, the primary side of a filter connected downstream of the container, and a return line from the primary side of the filter into the container, with the filter being configured to prepare purified water from the consumed dialysis solution, and with the second circuit having the secondary side of the filter, the dialyzate side of a dialyzer, and a return line from the dialyzate side of the dialyzer into the container. The present invention further relates to a method of regenerating a dialysis solution.

  • Publication number: 20200086025
    Abstract: A communication connection between a dialysis machine (such as a hemodialysis machine or a peritoneal dialysis machine) and a control device located away from the dialysis machine may be secured based on a safety protocol being implemented. The safety protocol may be executed in a server-side integrated circuit component and in a client-side integrated circuit component.

  • Publication number: 20200086029
    Abstract: A medical device, such as a hemodialysis machine or a peritoneal dialysis machine, is provided with control commands in a secure manner based on the commands being detected on a separate control component. The control commands are detected and thereupon a message is generated which contains a request to activate an operating element. Only if the indicated operating element has been activated is the control command forwarded to a dialysis machine for execution.

  • Patent number: 9415201
    Abstract: A medical device comprising a socket unit for connecting a plug unit and an automated connection of the plug unit to the socket unit via a connecting mechanism. The connecting mechanism has a drive unit that has at least one movable drive body that carries out a translational and/or rotational movement and a position detection mechanism for detecting the linear position and/or the angular position of the drive body. The position detection mechanism includes at least two magnet elements, and at least one sensor element. The linear position and/or angular position of the drive body is determined with an evaluation unit on the basis of the magnetic field generated by the at least two magnet elements and detected by the at least one sensor element.
