What a great invention! It's very convenient if it can be used not only for emergency but also for daily use.

With a Japanese friend on dialysis, this is great news.

Japanese medical science seems to be very impressive. A few years ago, I started a new drug for a medical condition after having little luck with other drugs and this new one worked wonders. Turns out the new drug was also developed in Japan.

Maybe the Chinese will learn to do so too, without stealing to copy.... the Japanese were once like that, but now they've advanced. The Chinese should learn to do the same.

The Japanese have always been good at refining an existing process towards something that is very useful.

Although many would have wondered when such a device will be available, it is coming soon. Well done Japanese medical scientists! This is a much better achievement than some countries with the largest submarine or the fastest hypersonic missiles.
