WHAT IS A CRANIAL PROSTHETIC?
A hair prosthesis (or cranial prosthesis) is a custom-made wig specifically designed for patients who have lost their hair as a result of medical conditions such as Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis, Trichotillomania, Chemotherapy, or any other clinical disease or treatment resulting in hair loss. The terminology is used when applying for medical insurance or tax deduction status.
Doctors have been prescribing these prostheses since the 1950s. Cranial prostheses also help to protect disease-weakened immune systems from the sun, and to regulate body temperature.
Cranial hair prostheses have advanced due to technology. A cranial hair prosthesis is different from a regular wig. Cranial hair prosthesis is done in several steps that include the measurement of the cranial perimeter mold to achieve a perfect fit. The mold is done at the base where the hair is attached. The base is made using a hypoallergenic fabric because people having chemotherapy are usually very sensitive to any material, and their scalp is prone to allergies. The same is done when applying the hair to the base. The technique used to attach the hair is focused on avoiding that the knotting touches the scalp. In doing so, we will create a mold of you and send in to the factory for a perfectly fitted unit! Out-of-State patients available upon request.

MD02 - Medical Unit
The top area was made by thin lace which is natural, soft and breathable. There is also a very thin layer of poly covering on the front with a scalloped front. This is invisible and gives a good shape to the front and ensures it will not roll up. The back is very thin and has soft elastic net with a very thin layer of anti-slip silicon on the back and sides. The elastic net make the wig fit the shape of the head better whereas the back anti-slip silicon sections make the wig stay more securely on the head. It is very easy to wear and put on or take off without the need for any tape or glue. Each material of this wig was made specifically to make the whole wig very thin, light and soft. The wearer even can feel it. The unit was designed for people suffering from cancer so it is comfortable to wear and will help restore the confidence of the wearer.
LL648 - Medical Unit
Thin Skin - This is a material that is used in a specially designed cranial prosthesis. It has a very natural appearance and is extremely fine and thin. It produces an effect as if hair is naturally growing from the scalp. This is often used for bonding a wig onto the scalp with a specialized bonding glue that will hold it in place for six weeks before it will need to be taken off, cleaned and reattached with fresh glue.
Injected skin wig with anti-slip silicon no need glue or tape. The whole wig was made from lift injected skin all over. Lift injected is one of the most natural ventilation methods – there are no knots on the base. The roots of the hair are shorter than normal injected which means the hair has more lift and is more realistic than normal injected hair. The design of this wig is suitable for people who want a wig that is easy to wear and does not require much tape or glue. It is also a good choice as a medical wig.
PU223 - Medical Unit
This medical grade unit was design specifically for medical use. The rear elastic net, anti-slip silicon back and sides and the whole wig shape make the unit sit securely on the head without the need for any glue or tape. The very thin PU covering on the front and the lace top offered a very natural appearance in these areas. The whole unit design is very light making it invisible and natural. The back anti-slip silicon is deliberately longer than it needs to be. This allows you to cut it from the back, so it can fit different clients. This, therefore, makes this wig design a good option as a stock wig.
NTW6 - Medical Unit
With our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology, you feel it at the flip of a switch. It continuously measures, compares and reacts to outside noise, then cancels it with the opposite signal. You can adjust your level of noise cancelling between three levels to better fit your environment.
LW7283- MEDICAL UNIT
The top area is made by silk top. Silk top is one of the most realistic ventilation methods and it creates a natural parting and crown. The material of the bottom layer of the silk top is specially designed for medical wigs so it is very soft. There is also a patch of anti-slip silicon on the under material to make the hold of the wig better. The rest is elastic net and together with the rear elastic band, the wig is adjustable and fits the head better. There is also a layer of very soft material on the temples and back for the comfort of the wearer. The front is 1/2” French lace all along to the temples edge. French lace is very thin and invisible which makes for a natural front hairline. The wig was special designed for the people suffering from cancer. All the material of the wig is very soft and comfortable to wear. It is also very easy to wear and take on and off and requires no tape or glue. The rear elastic net is not completely hand-tied. It is sewn on by machine-made weft
