Maguire Brain Health Sciences (www.MaguireHealth.com) has a targeted hypothermic (cooling) cap that stabilizes common childhood head bumps and mild concussive injuries. The Brain-d'Aid is a lightweight, disposable head cap that provides immediate, targeted and constant cooling to reduces brain tissue swelling and damage after mild-to-moderate blunt head trauma. The Brain-d'Aid is affordable, available over the counter, easy to administer at home or on the sports sidelines, easy to store in a first aid kit and, best of all, provides the immediate cooling as well as the constant, recommended (24-36 hours) head cooling after injury. The Brain-d'Aid gives control and peace of mind to parents of children 2-12 and athletic coaches of players 8-18. Causes of concussions in children include falls, sports-related injuries, vehicle-related collisions and violence. If left untreated, head injuries lead to physical, sensory, balance and cognitive defects that may persist for years after the in...
Maguire Brain Health Sciences (www.MaguireHealth.com) has a targeted hypothermic (cooling) cap that stabilizes common childhood head bumps and mild concussive injuries. The Brain-d'Aid is a lightweight, disposable head cap that provides immediate, targeted and constant cooling to reduces brain tissue swelling and damage after mild-to-moderate blunt head trauma. The Brain-d'Aid is affordable, available over the counter, easy to administer at home or on the sports sidelines, easy to store in a first aid kit and, best of all, provides the immediate cooling as well as the constant, recommended (24-36 hours) head cooling after injury. The Brain-d'Aid gives control and peace of mind to parents of children 2-12 and athletic coaches of players 8-18. Causes of concussions in children include falls, sports-related injuries, vehicle-related collisions and violence. If left untreated, head injuries lead to physical, sensory, balance and cognitive defects that may persist for years after the initial hit and can lead to conditions including learning deficits, dementia, balance issues and palsies. One simple treatment approach is to provide targeted cooling to the area(s) of the head involved in the injury or accident. Cooling prevents brain tissue death from both mechanical damage and spread of inflammatory toxins from injured cells. Targeted cooling slows processes that signal for brain cell and tissue death and maintains availability of oxygen to the area(s) of injury and enables non-injured brain areas that participate in functional recovery after injury. Cooling quickly controls and minimizes permanent damage to brain tissues that often occurs in the first 5-7 minutes after injury. Current cooling techniques are expensive, available only in hospitals and take 6 hours (on average) to apply. Permanent damage to tissue, however, sets in during the minutes after injury. The Brain-d'Aid will prove to have significant impact on children’s brain health, physical recovery and lifetime mental wellness.
Functional recovery strategies are powerful aspects of the Brain-d'Aid package. This product provides an array of suggested recovery and rehabilitation strategies that include targeted intellectual and cognitive brain games, prescription music, toys and applications. Cooling the brain and controlling recovery from mild concussive injury enables potential for stronger and better brain function than before the hit.
