DigniLife – the new generation in scalp cooling

Chemotherapy is tough on the body and tough on the mind. Studies show that chemotherapy-induced alopecia is one of the most distressing side effects. Since the 1970s, various attempts have been made to prevent hair loss using scalp cooling. Our unique DigniLife concept addresses the unmet issues from the past. And helps.

DigniLife is a customized concept that covers every angle of successful scalp cooling treatment in your routine.


The benefits

The DigniCap System is the only instrument on the market capable of adapting to these individual patients’ physical reactions:

  • Three sensors measure temperature continuously and directly on the patient’s scalp
  • Temperature is regulated according to the individual patient’s reaction
  • Separate temperature control and cooling circuits for the front and back of the head
  • Constant treatment temperature of 3-5°C for successful results and patient comfort
  • The system gradually cools down from room temperature to treatment temperature for greater patient comfort
  • Optical and acoustic alarms for enhanced safety


It also offers several features for a smart routine use:

  • Up to two patients can be treated entirely independently of one another
  • The instrument can be used as a single and dual patient device
  • You can save your treatment data
  • There is a countdown timer for post cooling
  • The cap’s shape follows the hairline and keeps the forehead and ears free
  • The DigniCap is flat on the inside:

  • The cap is easy to keep clean
