Cranial Remolding Orthoses (Cranial Helmets): Shaping Head Symmetry
When repositioning techniques prove insufficient in correcting an abnormal head shape, a cranial helmet may be prescribed. This treatment is often recommended for infants diagnosed with scaphocephaly, plagiocephaly, or brachycephaly.
A cranial remolding orthosis, custom-molded from plastic and foam, serves as a gentle guide to redirect cranial growth towards symmetry, effectively reshaping the head for improved form and function.
