Abstract

This project developed a mobile dialysis vehicle that is fully equipped to treat six patients per day before restocking of supplies is required. The modular vehicle, built on a Ford F-750 chassis, provides a secondary dialysis treatment option for patients who are unable to access traditional dialysis facilities due to long travel distances or natural disasters. The importance and functions of dialysis treatments are established. The design, components, and layout of the vehicle operations are described.
