Not so weird but very cool…in more ways than one.
Chemotherapy patients for decades have suffered the indignity of hair loss. Clinical studies circa 2011 report on the use of scalp cooling to save hair loss propagated by chemotherapy – see the MedScape abstract from the Expert Review of Dermatology, “Presentation, Impact and Prevention of Chemotherapy-induced Hair Loss.” [2011;6(1):109-125.]
Now an innovative company with an in-hospital device called the Penguin Cold Cap Therapy System is saving both men as well as women their locks, helping them keep their cancer condition private. These helmet-like caps are only used immediately pre and post each chemotherapy procedure. Just go to Pengiun cold caps to learn more.
If someone you know is struggling with cancer – let him/her know about this to share it with his/her oncologist. Read about its clinical trials and see how it works…
