Please leave the feedback on this idea
Is it original or innovative?
Is it feasible?
Is it targeting an unsolved problem?
Is it concisely described?
- The research study was conducted on young mice. Would we get the same results for older mice?
- Would prolonged mechanical stimulation on the human scalp induce hair regeneration?
- How much pressure would be required to stimulate hair growth in humans? Would the amount of pressure be tolerable/safe?
