Somatus Kidney Care has entered into an agreement with Redsense Medical to use the Redsense solution in the five acute programs maintained by Somatus in the Northern Virginia area. Somatus Kidney Care is a full service provider that provides integrated care for patients with or at-risk of developing kidney disease, and offers all dialysis modalities. It was established in 2016 and is headquartered in McLean, Virginia.

In 2020, Somatus was recognized as leader in kidney health in CB Insights' annual ranking of 150 promising digital health startups around the world – operators that are reimagining the traditional healthcare experience. Founded by a team of healthcare operators, entrepreneurs and clinicians, the company is working to grow through partnerships to provide personalized and holistic kidney care services locally in communities. It is currently servicing more than 30,000 kidney disease patients across six states.

About Redsense and home hemodialysis

The Redsense Alarm improves patient safety during hemodialysis by monitoring for blood leakage, which can occur, for example, if the venous needle is accidentally dislodged during treatment. Worldwide, it has been estimated that 2,100 needles dislodge every day.

Home hemodialysis is actively promoted by the recent US policy changes to improve kidney care. It is often preferred by patients and physicians, due to increased convenience, independence and quality of life, and the increased patient safety offered by the Redsense alarm enables more patients to adopt the treatment modality with less risk.

Redsense Medical is a corporate group with operations mainly in Europe and the United States. The company has developed the Redsense System, an innovationused for monitoring and alarm in the case of blood leakage in connection with a hemodialysis treatment. Redsense Medical solves one of the most serious remaining safety problems within hemodialysis – to quickly detect Venous Needle Dislodgement and catheter leakage to minimize blood leakage. The system consists of a patented fiber optic sensor, designed for either venous needle or central venous catheter, which is connected to an alarm unit. From the very start, the development of the company's technology has been based on the demands and safety requirements of healthcare providers in the dialysis sector.
