DX Chemo Aid
is a medical related app that assists patients who may be using the
Penguin Cold Caps technology to reduce hair loss from chemotherapy.
It allows you to set the date of each chemo treatment, and then it
will schedule all the cold cap related events and prompt for each on your
iOS device. This avoids using
a conventional egg timer to time the 30+ events associated with each chemo
treatment. Click here for

The Penguin Cold Caps therapy is
a product and process developed by a UK firm and marketed by MSC (Medical
Specialties of California). See their web site at http://www.msc-worldwide.com
for more information about their product and process.
For a typical chemo treatment
using cold caps, the patient will exchange the low temperature caps about
16 times over approximately 8 hours.
There are multiple steps for each exchange, with fairly strict
timelines for each. DX Chemo
Aid provides a simple way to schedule all of these events and activities
and to alert the user for each event. It also provides detailed “HowTo” information for each
step in the process.
Chemo Aid can also be used to
manage the medications associated with treatment.
Each medication can be added, along with the associated schedule.
Schedules can be general (as in daily, weekly, etc) or tied
directly to the start of chemo treatment.
Many current chemo drugs have a schedule tied to the start of
chemo, and DX Chemo Aid can handle the schedule for each of these as well.
All scheduled medications are added to your calendar, which
generates an alert for each medication at the time and date when it is
