STARscanner, STARband Cranial Helmets Making a Difference in the Lives of Children
Date:3/25/2009

Perry infant benefits from cutting-edge treatment

MACON, Ga., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Vickie Knight of Perry was thrilled to welcome her twin sons Dawson and Dakota into the world in February 2008, but her joy turned to concern when she noticed that over time Dawson's head was becoming increasingly flat on one side. Dawson developed plagiocephaly, which can result from babies resting for prolonged periods in one position in an infant carrier or crib.

Terry Thompson, C.O. of C. H. Martin Orthotics & Prosthetics evaluated Dawson and fit him with Orthomerica's STARband cranial helmet, a custom fabricated helmet -- made from plastic and foam from Dawson's unique head measurements. The helmet is worn 23 hours per day for several months, channeling front head growth by applying gentle contact on protruding areas while leaving room for growth in depressed areas.

"I was worried about how Dawson would respond to the helmet, and about the questions and looks I might get from others," Knight said. "But in the end, this is the best thing for my child, and we've seen such improvement."

C.H. Martin uses the STARscanner, a revolutionary eye-safe Class 1 laser system that allows for a child's head scan in less than two seconds.

"The STARscanner easily and quickly provides extremely detailed measurements, allowing us to track each patient's progress," said Thompson, who has 10 years of experience with cranial molding helmets.

STARscanner measurements can be easily obtained before, during and after treatment to ensure the best helmet fit and optimal outcomes. This allows treatment progress to be easily evaluated and documented. The scanner process is faster and cleaner than plaster casting formerly used to obtain the same information.
