Title (EN) HAIR LOSS AND RE-GROWTH SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ANTI-ALOPETIQUE ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Removable headwear is provided for therapeutically applying a permanent magnetic field to hair follicles located in the scalp to retard hair loss and promote hair re-growth. A flexible sheet of magnetic material (12) having a plurality of alternating north-south poles is placed with a head covering (16) that is in turn placed upon the head of a subject. Such head covering (16), while suitable for nighttime wear, may not be deemed socially acceptable for wear during the day. To enable the subject to maximize the exposure of the scalp to the magnetic fields, the head covering (16) is configured to permit an item of conventional headwear (32) to be placed over and cover the inner head covering (16).
(FR)La présente invention concerne coiffure amovible qui applique de façon thérapeutique un champs magnétique permanent sur les follicules des cheveux dans le cuir chevelu afin de retarder la chute des cheveux et favoriser une repousse capillaire. Une feuille souple de matériau magnétique (12) possédant une pluralité de pôles nord-sud alternés, est placée dans un couvre-chef (16), ce dernier prenant place sur la tête d'un sujet. Ce couvre-chef (16), coiffure convenable pour la nuit, peut ne pas convenir pour des activités sociales diurnes. Aux fins de permettre au sujet d'exposer au maximum son cuir chevelu aux champs magnétiques, ce couvre-chef (16) est agencé pour accepter un article de coiffure (32) conventionnel par dessus ce dernier (16).
