Dignitana signs Atrium Health in U.S. for DigniCap Delta scalp cooling system
Dignitana AB, world leader in medical scalp cooling technology, announced today that the company has signed a contract with Atrium Health to provide the DigniCap Delta model of The DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System to Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute sites. Dignitana’s advanced and redesigned scalp cooling device received FDA clearance for use on 26 June 2019. Atrium Health is a leading healthcare provider in the U.S. and the first new customer with multiple locations to contract with Dignitana for the DigniCap Delta device.
"DigniCap Delta provides state-of-the-art scalp cooling and we are seeing growing demand for this new technology,” says William Cronin, Chief Executive Officer of Dignitana AB. “As we work to move modern cancer care forward, we are proud to add Atrium Health to the list of progressive healthcare organizations that offer cancer patients this important therapy option.”
Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Atrium Health has a network of more than 50 hospitals, including more than 25 locations of Levine Cancer Institute across the Carolinas. The first DigniCap Delta will be installed at the flagship Levine Cancer Institute facility in Charlotte in September, after which time Dignitana will work closely with administration to provide scalp cooling at the remaining infusion centers based on market demand.
Following FDA clearance in June, DigniCap Delta is now available to medical centers in the United States. European installations of DigniCap Delta began last month after the device received CE Marking in March 2019. The previous DigniCap device, C3, is already in use in 30 states in the U.S. and in 37 markets globally.
DigniCap Delta uses solid state cooling for precise temperature control in an advanced and redesigned model of the 2015 FDA cleared DigniCap Scalp Cooling System. The new device delivers significant improvements over other scalp cooling systems on the market:
- Single patient use - New cap system provides each patient with a flexible Cooling Wrap and an adjustable Thermal Cap designed to optimize scalp cooling outcomes and minimize clinic storage needs.
- Smaller size - Streamlined profile is 54 percent smaller than the previous unit.
- Reduced nursing time - Intuitive interface means up to 80 percent reduction in nursing time per patient infusion versus the existing device.
