Tablo is a 150-pound, 3-foot-tall, largely automated dialysis machine designed for patients to use by themselves, with a simple step-by-step procedure that makes it easier to operate than existing home machines.
Outset was founded as Home Dialysis Plus in 2003 with technology licensed from HP and Oregon State University and developed by co-founder Michael Baker.
Outset has raised more than $100 million, plus $40 million in debt financing, from investors including Warburg Pincus and Fidelity Investments.
About 460,000 U.S. patients have end-stage kidney diseases that require help from dialysis clinicians, typically three times a week.
Outset says testers age 29-79 were able to prep the dialysis machine for use in 10 to 12 minutes with minimal training.
