Plagiocephaly helmets, known as cranial orthoses, aim to improve symmetry of a baby's skull.
If repositioning alone has not been effective, at Steeper Clinic we use the world leading STARband™ helmets to gently guide growth and restore normal head shape.
STARband™ is the world’s leading orthoses and is designed to be used in infants during the period of greatest skull growth - normally between 6 to 12 months - to apply pressure to irregular and “bulging” shaped parts of the skull and relieve pressure from other parts, enabling growth in the flatter areas of the skull.
Using the latest non-invasive laser scanning technique, we use the highly precise measurements to create a custom-made STARband™ helmet to fit your child. The helmets are available in a wide range of colours and patterns for you to design your helmet.
If you are concerned about your child’s head shape and would like to understand the severity level, please contact us in the first instance to arrange a free objective assessment.
