At the Steeper Clinic, we specialise in the treatment of deformational plagiocephaly (sometimes known as “flat head syndrome”) in babies. Our team of experienced, HPC registered and CRB checked Paediatric Orthotists offer a holistic treatment service which includes the use of repositioning techniques, helpful products and STARband cranial remoulding orthoses (helmets).
STARband is the leading orthotic treatment for deformational plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome) in babies aged between 4 and 18 months. Over 125,000 babies with flat head syndrome have been successfully treated using the STAR family of cranial remoulding orthoses since the year 2000.
Using the latest, non invasive laser scanning techniques, we can create a custom made STARband designed specifically for your baby. Once fitted, the STARband carefully corrects the shape of your baby’s head as it grows, encouraging growth in depressed or flattened areas whilst controlling growth in prominent or bossed areas.
Clinics are located in the City of Westminster, London and in Leeds, West Yorkshire. It is part of RSLSteeper, the UK’s largest provider of orthotic and prosthetic clinical services. With a network of over 90 highly skilled clinicians we provide high-quality clinical services independently and in partnership with the NHS.
