Plagiocephaly Treatment

Over 125,000 babies worldwide have been successfully treated with STARband™

If you have tried ‘tummy time’ re-positioning and the flattened areas do not show signs of improvement, we offer the world leading STARband™ helmet treatment to gently guide growth and shape your baby’s head.

Throughout the treatment, our paediatric orthotists will make sure both you and your child feel supported and at ease, from the initial consultation, through treatment and beyond.

The softly lined STARband™ helmet gently reshapes your baby’s head by encouraging growth in the areas that are flat.

Each STARband™ helmet is created from a laser scan of your baby’s head using the latest scanning technology system -SmartSoc™highly accurate and safe. 

Using SmartSoc™ means there is no need to take a cast of the head, and detailed 3D scans can be used straightaway to start producing the custom helmet.  We can arrange for a fitting of the STARband™ within 2 weeks of the scan.

The advanced software allows us to accurately monitor the changes to your baby’s head throughout the entire treatment programme.

If you are concerned about your child's head shape, get in touch to arrange a Plagiocephaly Assessment in the first instance.

The SmartSoc™ system will provide you with objective measurements on the severity of your child's condition and based on the results, we can discuss with you the next steps.

Note: A visit to our clinic will not automatically result in a decision to have your baby fitted for a STARband™ helmet – we offer treatment in cases where repositioning has failed and assess on a case by case basis.  Our orthotists often determine that no intervention is needed, and in some cases babies may require a re-scan just to review any changes to their head shape.

What’s the success rate?

All babies that have completed STARband treatment achieve measurable improvements

with correct use of the helmet
