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 500,000 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.
One Headband Guarantee
By design, the STARband allows for the successful completion of treatment of more than 98% of all deformational plagiocephaly and brachycephaly patients with a single orthosis. In order to achieve that level of success, families must comply with the recommended 23-hour per day wearing schedule and participate in a structured follow-up program involving ongoing adjustments and modifications. If the clinical protocols are properly followed, the need for a second headband is rarely indicated. The primary purpose of the One Headband Guarantee is to produce optimal clinical outcomes for infants with deformational plagiocephaly and brachycephaly while providing a significant cost savings to families and payers. STARband clinicians may request more information on Orthomerica’s One Headband Guarantee program below.
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.
