Cranial Remolding Orthosis
The STAR® Family of Cranial Remolding Orthoses has been used to treat positional Plagiocephaly, Brachycephaly, Scaphocephaly and other head shape deformities in infants 3-18 months of age since 2000. Over 600,000 infants have been successfully treated with the STARband, the first cranial remolding orthosis with FDA clearance available to O&P practitioners across the United States and around the globe.
Orthomerica currently offers the widest selection of cranial remolding orthosis designs available, each designed to effectively manage a variety of head shape deformities, levels of severity, and clinical indications.
Treatment generally takes 3–4 months but varies depending on the infant’s age and severity of cranial asymmetry.
Orthomerica’s cranial remolding orthoses can be fabricated from a positive modified cast, unmodified cast, or a scan of the infant’s head using the STARscanner and SmartSoc systems.
STAR® Family of Cranial Remolding Orthoses
The STARband and STARlight designs provide total contact over the prominent areas of the skull and leave voids over the flattened areas to provide a pathway for more symmetrical skull growth.
The STARband and STARlight bi-valved designs are effective for treating Scaphocephaly and other head shape deformities.
