About this Wishlist

We need some of these innovative Dyson Supersonic Hairdryers for our patients here at the Hospice.


Due to the use of oxygen cylinders here at the Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, it was decided during a recent fire safety meeting that there was considerable risk associated with patients on oxygen using traditional hair dryers.

The risk is down to the design of many traditional hair dryers, and the additional dangers that can occur when using older hair dryers. The exposed heating element within them causes the risk and this is only made worse as the dryer gets older/more used. To remedy this, the Dyson hair dryers contain technology to drastically reduce the amount of heat it produces:

“Sensors monitor the heating elements in the head 20 times every second to ensure a constant temperature is maintained—automatically shutting the unit down should it get too hot. And the Supersonic’s accessories, including a concentrator, smoothing nozzle, and diffuser, attach using a magnetic ring, and feature double-walled designs keeping the heat on the inside so the outside remains cool to the touch and easy to swap out.” (Andrew Liszewski, gizmodo.com – for the full article click here).

Ideally, we would want to have three of these hair dryers, one for each of our care areas – Day Hospice, Adult In-Patient Unit and Jigsaw Children’s Hospice. Allowing our patients to safely and easily dry their hair, even while using oxygen cylinders, is a wonderful facility to have and goes a long way in helping us provide the home-from-home environment we strive for.
