What is Hair Donation Verification Service?
Medical asset tagging, tracing, and hair use verification.
For hair donor’s who have a genuine interest in donating their hair.
HLA-HDV cost effectively verifies hair donations by assigning a serial number and creating a medical hair donation tracking record for identifying the hair’s final usage/outcome. Developed in response to an issue revealed of a mass shortage in available age appropriate human hair children wigs. Relating to hair donations not qualifying for use in children’s prosthesis. Finding that 80% of the hair donated today is not used for its intended purpose in children’s wigs, as declared by many top charities.

Ignoring the crucial fact that hair donations are a medical related component, a byproduct of a prosthesis. If a donor is serious about donating their hair then they should also be just as concerned with the actual outcome of their donation. Using HDV can save charities many wasted volunteer hours, and from becoming overwhelmed sorting through non-qualified donations.

Without mentioning any of the charities names, hair was traced, and Geo tracked. Only to find that the donated hair ended up in a landfill.
Many charities have acknowledged this issue and confirm that HDV is a solution to reduce wasted donation hair, time, and money.
