This hat or cap contains 224 5-mW laser diodes in a mesh network that would cover the whole scalp. One can administer this device in a convenient and discreet fashion since it has a rechargeable battery that will have the treatment continuously done even while on the go. This device can be rented through physicians for patients to avail of the treatment. In order to determine the therapeutic benefits of the procedure, it is recommended that patients should have a long term follow-up with this therapy.
