A COMPANY supplying scalp coolers to combat hair loss in cancer patients is embarking on another export adventure.
Fenay Bridge-based Paxman Coolers is one of five Yorkshire firms showcasing cutting edge innovations in Latin America this month to highlight how their pioneering products are improving healthcare for patients around the world.
Paxman Coolers will be attending Hospitalar – the largest medical exhibition in Latin America – which takes place from May 25 to 28 in São Paulo, Brazil.
The Yorkshire companies will form part of the UK delegation showing British healthcare innovation to the 86,000 visitors and looking for new business and export opportunities across the region.
Paxman Coolers will be showcasing its pioneering scalp cooler, which provides cancer patients with the best possible chance of retaining their hair while they undergo chemotherapy treatment. Figures show that on average 70-90% of patients who use Paxman Coolers award winning technology do not require a wig.
Operations director Richard Paxman said: “Latin America is a target market for us and we are eager to look for partners in this region.
“The exhibition will allow us to platform our products on an international stage and establish links with potential business partners, enabling us to expand on our already buoyant overseas market.”
The Yorkshire firms will be supported by Medilink Yorkshire and Humber, the organisation dedicated to the growth of the region’s healthcare technologies sector, and government export support arm UK Trade & Investment.
