Medical couch manufacturer Plinth 2000 has launched a new dialysis chair after demand from the Middle East – the World’s fourth largest importer of kidney dialysis equipment.

The Wetheringsett firm originally partnered with Baxter Healthcare to make the chair but mothballed the designs after there was little uptake.

Now it has had an influx of enquiries from an Arab health exhibition and will trial the chair in the UK.

The company says the revised model is designed for comfort during prolonged dialysis treatment, and has electric hand controls.
