Cranial Center provides STARband™ cranial remolding orthoses to address deformational Plagiocephaly and post-operative cranial remolding orthoses for craniosynostosis.
Early orthotic intervention starting between three and eight months of age yields the best results. This strategic time period captures rapid cranial growth, and the orthosis directs the growth towards greater skull symmetry and proportion.
Cranial remolding orthoses are custom molded to encourage the skull to become more symmetrical and/or proportional. A cranial remolding orthosis does not squeeze the baby’s head into shape, but rather redirects growth and provides the space into which the flattened portion of the skull can grow.
