Nearly 11 million people worldwide have end-stage kidney disease and need dialysis treatment to survive. About 8 million people, mostly in developing nations, have limited or no access to life-saving dialysis treatment owing to the high cost and/or unavailability of therapy.
Globally, the dialysis market is estimated to be $120 billion annually. The US alone spends about $48 billion per year on dialysis.
Byonyks exists to bring innovative, safe, and cost-effective, home-based dialysis to those who need it.
