Cool compensation


Maintaining a low room temperature can reduce MS symptoms.

During chemotherapy, meanwhile, a cool head can – literally – help prevent hair loss.

The blood vessels under the scalp constrict in the cold, meaning they are reached by fewer chemicals. Minimising damage to the roots.

Enabling patients to move freely during infusions – thus freeing up seats for other patients.

Solar-powered helmets improve safety when cycling and a special hairband helps support schizophrenia patients.
