This project is funded by Technology Strategy Board Smart grant of £500,000 awarded to Paxman Coolers to develop and improve the Paxman scalp cooler to enable the product to meet the needs of a global market, together with improvements to efficacy and patient experience. The development includes improvements to the cap which will take into account anthropometric data, 3D head scanning and 3D modelling to create an innovative solution that offers significant improvements to current design. 3D laser sintering technology is used to create tools and in close collaboration with a major silicon manufacturer a novel system for cap production for producing a new design which gives a better user experience through improved comfort, fit and heat conductivity. The product will be protected by world patent cover and is subject to non-disclosure agreements with the University’s partners.
