The genetic disorder Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) makes skin ultra-sensitive to UV light. Any exposure to the sun’s rays or artificial UV sources (e.g. some halogen and neon lights) can cause fatal skin cancer. People suffering from XP (30 thousand worldwide, most of them children) need special protection, covering all body parts. Several attempts were made to facilitate their daily lives. An improved layout of the currently used head mask and making it available for developing countries would be next important steps.
