The Intelligent Scalp Cooling System™

For some patients, the prospect of losing their hair is more than just a matter of vanity. It’s an unwelcome reminder of their disease for the patient and their families. In select locations, Florida Cancer Specialists offers the DigniCap® scalp cooling system to patients undergoing chemotherapy to help diminish the added emotional burden from hair loss.

Patient shown wearing DigniCap while receiving chemotherapy - the cooling system helps reduce the risk of hair loss

DigniCap® has been used successfully outside the United States. FDA clearance paved the way for infusion centers across the U.S. to offer patients the DigniCap® system while they receive their chemotherapy treatments.

How it Works

The DigniCap® scalp cooling system features a patented tight-fitting silicone cooling cap that is placed directly on the head. A liquid coolant circulates throughout the silicone cap, delivering consistent and controlled cooling to all areas of the scalp. These factors together reduce the risk of hair loss.

Key System Features:

  • Gradual cool-down from room temperature provides patient comfort
  • Self-regulating temperature control system automatically detects and adjusts cooling temperature based on the scalp temperature detected by two separate sensors built into the cap
  • Flash memory, DIGNISTICK™, makes it possible to save data from each scalp cooling treatment and facilitates software upgrades
