Conedio / Chemo without Hairloss

Conedio
Conedio

Hairloss is one of the most feared side effects of chmotherapy. It stigmatizes the patient and carries the disease outwards. Scalp cooling can prevent hair loss caused by certain chemotherapy drugs. For patients, this means the opportunity to regain some control, maintain their privacy and encourage a positive attitude. It works by reducing the temperature of the scalp to 19°C immediately before, during and after the chemo-treatment. This reduces the blood flow to the hair follicles. However, the products on the market still offer much potential for improvement. Conedio convinces through its innovations in technology, design and usability.
