Amit specializes in the areas of radiotherapy and instrumentation products. The company developed the Scalp Cooling System II, a device designed to reduce hair loss during chemotherapy treatment. The SCS II is based on the principle of scalp hypothermia displaying a dual effect: vasoconstriction of scalp blood vessels and reduction of metabolic activity, thereby minimizing damage to follicle cells and hair loss. The SCS II System is already used in a number of hospitals and has prevented hair loss in a high percentage of patients treated by several chemotherapeutical drugs that cause hair loss.
