DALLAS, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Orthomerica Products Inc. is taking its high tech treatment for cranial remolding on the road with the company's new Mobile STAR Cranial Center of Excellence, a vehicle equipped with the company's STARscanner -- a head shape scanning system that scans a child's head in less than two seconds. The vehicle's scanner can be easily moved for use in satellite clinics wherever the unit travels, and the van is also equipped with the necessary tools to make adjustments to STARband cranial remolding helmets.
The Mobile STAR Cranial Center of Excellence will be based at the company's Dallas STAR Cranial Center of Excellence location and will travel to satellite communities that do not normally have access to this industry-leading cranial remolding technology.
"This vehicle will allow our practitioners to travel around the Dallas metro area in an effort to increase awareness for plagiocephaly and other head shape abnormalities, and to educate pediatricians, practitioners and families of the importance of early recognition," said Bill Gustavson, Director of Operations for STAR Cranial Center of Excellence. "But more importantly, it allows us to use our STAR Cranial Center of Excellence technology, tools and expert clinical staff to reach outlying communities who otherwise would not have access to the STARscanner and STARband treatment. The mobile unit also allows us to offer some follow-up appointments in those areas so families will not have to travel to Dallas every two weeks for the duration of their child's treatment."
The Mobile STAR Cranial Center of Excellence currently visits the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center - Shreveport, Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic in Shreveport, Louisiana with Dr. Ghali Ghali once per month to see patients for STARband treatment.'/>"/>
