Huddersfield University experts received a number of awards for design and development of a scalp cooling cap which could reduce hair loss in cancer patients. The brief was to redesign the cap so it is a better fit – vital if the device is to be effective – and can be mass-manufactured, making it more economical.
The cap developed fits the head more efficiently and improved flow pattern of the coolant. The team did extensive research into head sizes and used 3D technology to develop a new design and now granted two internationals and two UK patents. The new cap uses 3D printed tooling technologies for mass manufacturing of lightweight silicone material.
