Head Shape Asymmetry Assessment and Health Practitioner Referral Form

The head shape assessment is a complimentary service that can be tailored to your practice and patient’s needs. We can provide a 3D scan of the head shape to accurately assess the severity and advise on treatment options should they be required.

Plagiocephaly Guide

This guide provides useful information for the treatment and prevention of plagiocephaly.

SnugKap Cranial Remodelling Band Wear and Care Guide

This guide will provide instructions on how you should care for your baby’s SnugKap Cranial Band (“Band”), and the appropriate conditions and schedule for your baby to wear their band.

Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta – Plagiocephaly Severity Scale

An evaluation tool to assist medical professionals in determining the appropriate course of treatment for their patients.

Tummy Time Tools – Activities to help you position, carry, hold and play with your baby

Tummy Time Tools helps you make sure your baby gets enough time on his tummy each day. This is done through activities such as handling, carrying, diapering, positioning, feeding and playing with your baby. All of these should take place while your baby is awake and supervised.

Imaging Consent Form

Positioning Protocol

Frequent changes in your child’s position are recommended. Examples are listed below to help improve your child’s neck mobility to prevent or to improve an abnormal head shape. If your child’s head shape fails to improve by 3 to 4 months of age, contact your doctor.

RESEARCH

TREATED VERSUS UNTREATED POSITIONAL HEAD DEFORMITY

The authors found clear improvement in nonsynostotic head deformity treated with an individual molding helmet and no clear evidence of improvement of absolute measurements in untreated cranial deformity within a 5-year follow-up period.

COMPARISON BETWEEN EARLY AND LATE INTERVENTIONS

This study demonstrates that when the treatment of cranial asymmetry is initiated between 3-6 months of life, the best symmetry outcomes are obtained within a shorter time, as compared with a later intervention time.

2016 NEUROLOGICAL SURGEONS CONCLUSION ON THE ROLE OF CRANIAL MOLDING ORTHOSES

There is a fairly substantive body of non-randomized evidence that demonstrates more significant and faster improvement of cranial shape in infants with positional plagiocephaly treated with a helmet as compared to conservative therapy, especially if the deformity is severe, and provided that helmet therapy is applied during the appropriate period of infancy

A SLEEPING & SUPINE APPROACH TO THE MANAGEMENT OF INFANT HEADSHAPE ASYMMETRY: MADE POSSIBLE BY 3D PRINTING

Knowledge that current research evidence suggests improved outcomes and reduced treatment times are possible with early intervention was coupled with 3D printing technology to design an innovative treatment program for infants with positional cranial deformation. This new treatment option has been shown to allow this population to access early care without the associated limitations of current CRO technology.  Quantitative 3D data showed excellent head shape symmetry outcomes, while parent compliance, satisfaction and acceptance exceeds previous reports in the literature for this population.
