Great news! While I was attending the ESRD Network annual meeting, I chanced to meet a VP of a chair manufacturer and we got talking. I tried out the chair he had on display and we started generating ideas for the next generation of chairs. After about a half hour, he suggested I should visit their plant and, talk with the engineers. I happily accepted his offer and told him I’d make myself available. It would be nice to have a dialysis chair designed with patient input, wouldn’t it? I really appreciated his interest in my perspective on the dialysis chair.
I will keep you posted on this as it develops. I’ll let you know more (like the VP and the company) when I hear about specific plans being discussed and made. I don’t want to mention names until the plan is more fully developed. But I’m excited to have some input into something I spend so much time with!
