Achieve a more symmetrical shape for your child
Cranial remolding helmet
Cranial remolding helmets can be used in the treatment of deformational plagiocephaly, brachycephaly and other conditions. The objective of the remolding helmet is to leave a space where the concerned area (flat spot) is and maintain contact of the head in the other areas. As the head grows, it will fill into the space and the growth will slow in the areas of contact.
The goal is to try to achieve a more symmetrical shape of the head at the end of treatment. The length of treatment time varies depending on the severity and age of the infant.
Each infant with plagiocephaly or brachycephaly should be assessed by an experienced healthcare professional who will provide a treatment plan for the infant based on the individual requirements. It is important to have a physician assess the head and determine the cause for the asymmetry to ensure that the cause is addressed in the treatment plan. The Certified Orthotists at CODG are trained to provide Cranial Remolding Helmet Treatments.
