The essence of the technology, according to the head of the project “Cryo-technical” Oleg, is simple enough – thanks to the helmet, controlled cooling of the scalp, which lowers the temperature of the brain. Cooling, which is important, is achieved through the use of anthropometric (that is – repeating the shape of the head) cryoapplicators.
In addition to strokes and head injury, the device, according to the developers, helps with white fever, as well as in the state of affect, migraine, and some other diseases.

Phonons can have a mass and, possibly, even anti-gravity
Nobody previously thought that phonons are really particles (that is, they have mass). Now researchers believe that phonons can have a negative mass – this, in turn, implies the presence of antigravity properties.
