Scalp cooling is increasingly considered a standard of care within chemotherapy treatment, as prioritising side-effect management and improving a patient's experience of treatment is being prioritised in cancer care.

The trauma of hair loss does not have to be inevitable if scalp cooling is offered by your centre.

Chemotherapy-induced alopecia is universally considered to be one of the most feared side-effects of treatment, with up to 10% of patients either refusing chemotherapy or choosing a less effective regimen to avoid hair loss.1,2

Our systems lead the way in scalp cooling technology, providing easy-to-use, efficacious solutions for clinicians and their patients.

Paxman have over 20 years of experience of implementing scalp cooling systems across the world, and can provide the expertise needed to integrate scalp cooling seamlessly into your clinical practice.
