SCALP COOLING

WHAT IS SCALP COOLING

Scalp cooling is a proven approach to reduce chemotherapy-induced alopecia that has been used successfully by thousands of patients worldwide for several decades. Reduced temperature results in a decreased blood flow to the scalp area so that less chemotherapy reaches the hair cells. Hair cells are therefore not exposed to the full dose of chemotherapy and may be able to survive the chemotherapy treatment. As a result, hair is less likely to fall out.

WHAT IS SCALP COOLING

Two physiologic reactions occur during scalp cooling:

1. Reduced blood flow–vasoconstriction in the localized scalp area limits the amount of chemotherapy agent delivered to the scalp and hair follicles.

2. Reduced reaction rate – the lower scalp temperature decreases metabolism causing normal cellular activity in the localized scalp area to slow dramatically. Fewer chemotherapy agents are then absorbed by the hair cells and damage is significantly

WHY SCALP COOLING MATTERS

A patient’s hair can be a major part of their identity, and many patients rate hair loss as one of the most devastating side effects of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy-induced alopecia is an unwelcome reminder of disease, one that can negatively affect self-image, confidence, overall sense of well-being and a patient’s attitude toward treatment.

Hair loss is no longer inevitable. The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System is a proven approach to reduce chemotherapy-induced alopecia, used successfully by thousands of patients worldwide to maintain privacy, self-esteem and control during a critical period of treatment.

The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System has been used around the world since 2001. In 2015, after a multi-center clinical trial, DigniCap became the first scalp cooling system to receive FDA clearance in the
United States.

THE DIGNICAP SCALP COOLING SYSTEM

DigniCap offers patients the ability to reduce hair loss from certain chemotherapy treatments and is FDA cleared for patients with solid tumors.

The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System consists of a computerized cooling unit managed through a touch screen display and an attached cooling cap. Temperature regulated coolant continuously circulates though specially designed channels in the cooling cap. The ability to maintain continuous, direct contact between the cooling cap and scalp for a consistent treatment temperature is a key factor in the effectiveness of DigniCap.

There are 2 models of The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System, the NEW DigniCap Delta and DigniCap C3. Both systems provide effective scalp cooling, but the machine, caps and business models are different.
