We build medical devices to stop the side effects of cancer treatment.

Luminate Medical is developing a medical device that helps cancer patients prevent chemotherapy induced hair loss in a comfortable and portable way. Over 1.1M US patients receive chemotherapy treatments causing hair loss each year, creating a $1.7B market in the US alone. To date, we've used our novel compression therapy to prevent hair loss in a 120 animal study, and completed a clinical study showing our device works with healthy volunteers. Our team includes a Thiel Fellow, and a Biomedical Electronic Engineering PhD who has led clinical trials for breast cancer patients.
