A cranial remolding orthosis, or helmet, is a device that will help to reshape a baby’s head. Midwest Orthotic & Technology Center’s clinical staff is trained to scan your baby’s head for accurate measurements and help you make an educated decision on whether a remolding orthosis is right for your baby.
The cranial remolding helmet will create or facilitate improved symmetry by guiding the growth of the head. Essentially, if the head grows and the helmet is on, then the head and face will become more symmetrical. The best age to fit a child with a helmet is when the child is between 4 and 9 months of age.
