B. Braun Avitum launches new dialysis website
The B. Braun website for dialysis patients offers tips for healthy nutrition, time management and vacation planning, and offers patients with renal failure holistic support for their everyday lives.
Melsungen. With its products and services it is B. Braun's goal to protect and improve the health of people around the world. B. Braun Avitum, a globally operating, full-spectrum supplier in the field of dialysis, has developed a new website that supports the everyday lives of patients with renal failure.
"It is important to us to support patients with renal failure in the best way possible. Such patients often have difficulties in reconciling the demands of their condition with everyday life - like pursuing their hobbies or being able to travel abroad with their family," explains Christopher Boeffel, Vice President Global Provider Business. "Our new website intends to help those affected and their families in finding practical solutions to everyday challenges, and in approaching them with more optimism."
The website includes a variety of information on different areas of life. In addition to basic explanations and comprehensive information about possible therapy approaches, it provides patients with tips for an active and happy lifestyle. For example, it helps with adjustment of medication and making appointments for dialysis treatments, and also presents fitness and cooking tutorials in so-called "3x7 tips."
Furthermore, the website offers checklists for vacation planning and a search function for holiday dialysis centers. Renal care centers abroad are displayed on an embedded Google map, including contact information and therapy offerings. This makes vacation planning for patients significantly easier, leaving more time for the important things in life.
