DigniLife – Prevention of chemotherapy-induced alopecia

Experience shows that efficient and effective scalp cooling treatment requires more than just
an elaborate instrument. Working with experts from various European countries, Dignitana
and Sysmex identified several factors that are essential for making sure scalp cooling
treatment is successful during adjuvant and palliative chemotherapy:

  • Tight collaboration between nurses, physicians and patients
  • A step-by-step concept, properly integrated in the established workflow
  • Staff need to be well trained in applying scalp cooling treatments and in offering best possible patient support
  • The administrative workload has to be minimised
  • Technical service and support has to be available within an acceptable timeframe


To meet these needs, Sysmex developed the DigniLife® Concept. It addresses all issues
typically observed in hospitals and doctors’ offices.
