SYNOPEX's Portable HD (Hemodialysis) Medical Device is the only hemodialysis machine in Korea. In Korea, the hemodialysis-related market is expected to increase from 1.3 trillion won in 2019 to 1.8 trillion won this year, but so far, all hemodialysis machines are dependent on imports. Sinopex aims to serve as the last support of the Korean medical industry by localizing hemodialysis devices. It is a medical device that reflects the results of analysis through the use environment and the use scenario of operability of medical staff at Seoul National University Hospital in the design, It has design competitiveness that can effectively respond not only in Korea but also in overseas hospitals with formative properties that maximize treatment environment, error minimization, and intuitive usability. The small and compact body is easy to use in a narrow hospital room, and it is convenient to move between rooms or at home. The large indicator LED on the top of the LCD helps medical staff to treat patients quickly in an emergency. The pump and syringe were positioned to easily and quickly replace and manage the blood line, and it was ergonomically designed to make it easier to replace the drainage without bending the waist
