A cranial prosthesis — sometimes called a hair prosthesis — is a wig that is specifically designed for a patient who has lost his or her hair due to medical condition like cancer and its associated chemotherapy treatment.
The hair loss requiring the need for a hair prosthesis can be either long-term or permanent, and the prosthesis can provide either full or partial coverage. A cranial prosthesis offers patients who’ve lost their hair a high-quality, comfortable hair replacement option that is usually covered by insurance.
Is There a Difference Between a Cranial Prosthesis and a Wig?
Yes, here is a technical difference between a prosthesis and a wig. While a cranial prosthesis is a wig, it is classified as a cranial prosthesis if the hair loss necessitating the prosthetic is caused by a diagnosed medical condition, treatment or other clinical disease.
A cranial prosthesis also differs from an off-the-shelf wig in terms of quality and function. A cranial prosthesis is designed with the comfort of the wearer in mind. Unlike an off-the-shelf wig, a cranial prosthesis is made with a blend of real human hair which is manufactured to reduce irritation. Each customer undergoes a series of head measurements to obtain a perfect fit.
