MigraCap has been developed by a sufferer for sufferers, using a combination of cold therapy and complete darkness to give relief from the pain that is associated with Migraine and most types of headaches.
This 2 in 1 solution is unique for any Migraine relief product with the added benefit of being a one-off purchase.
The Lycra cap covers the whole of the head and eye area and is filled with specially formulated gel packs that are strategically positioned to target the areas of the head affected by the intense pain. Ergonomically designed for maximum comfort the breathable, flexible lycra material enables the cap to fit all head shapes and can be used by a person with both short and long hair. (A ''cut-away'' in the material allows users with long hair to pull the hair through for maximum effectiveness. Another first for a Migraine relief product).
Migra Cap can be stored in a domestic fridge or freezer and the specially formulated gels ensure that Migra-Cap® will not freeze to a solid. It is currently available in 4 colours: black, royal blue, purple and navy. All caps have a black inner lining to ensure exclusion from light.

Hywel Edwards, Managing Director of Migra Cap International was diagnosed a Migraine sufferer at the age of 4. Migraine has created many disruptions and the loss of many days of childhood, education, employment and social events, a fact that any Migraine sufferer can identify with.
Having tried almost all types of pain relieving medication and non medication products they did not give him the relief that he longed for. Hywel did however find that the use of cold therapy was helping but everything that he tried was either messy, inconvenient or didn’t retain the coldness for very long. Most of the products were very cumbersome and uncomfortable to use.
It has taken Hywel three years to find his own solution based on his experiences and research. That solution is Migracap.
“The final design was a revelation, I had an attack coming on and I went straight to the freezer and put the prototype on my head. I could not believe the relief I experienced at that time."
“ In the belief that it helped me with my suffering it could also help others, I decided to work towards making Migracap available to other sufferers so that they too could have the opportunity to receive the same benefits from my innovation.” Hywel Edwards MD Migracap International 2003
A lot of people get migraines -- about 11 out of 100. The headaches tend to start between the ages of 10 and 46 and may run in families. Migraines occur more often in women than men. Pregnancy may reduce the number of migraines attacks.
Until the 1980s, scientists believed that migraines were due to changes in blood vessels within the brain. Today, most believe the attack actually begins in the brain itself, and involves various nerve pathways and chemicals in the brain. A migraine attack can be triggered by stress, food, environmental changes, or some other factor.
Migra-Cap has been developed by a Migraine sufferer for Migraine sufferers. The migra-Cap combines cold therapy and complete darkness to give relief from the pain associated with a Migraine and most types of headaches.
