Starband Cranial Molding Helmets

These are custom plastic helmets that are designed and modified to treat and reshape babies with asymmetric skull deformities, or plagiocephaly and brachycephaly. The optimal age of use is 4-6 months of age, but an average of 75% reduction of asymmetry can be achieved when the cranial molding helmet is started before 12 months of age.
