Current hemodialysis techniques rely on hollow-fiber tubes in a tube-and-shell operating approach. The method works satisfactorily; but, technological advantages of this method are already exhausted for a long time. Additional improvements are needed which could provide a way towards improving patient health and quality of life. Patients with renal failure undergo intense filtration sessions approximately three times a week leaving them fatigued. Large oscillations in concentration of various solutes within blood cause detrimental consequences on the overall health of patients.
