STARscanner, STARband Cranial Helmets Making a Difference in the Lives of New Jersey Children

Morganville infant benefits from cutting-edge treatment

HAZLET, N.J., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- When little Max Kornhauser was six months old, his parents were shocked to note that Max's head was becoming very flat on one side. The family immediately sought medical attention.

The diagnosis? Plagiocephaly.

Plagiocephaly can develop when babies rest for prolonged periods in one position in an infant carrier or crib. It can also be acquired as a result of crowding intra utero or in twins or multiple births.

Joe Ghizzone, a specialist at Nouveau Prosthetics and Orthotics, first evaluated Max at six months of age and fit him with Orthomerica's STARband cranial helmet, a custom fabricated helmet made from plastic and foam from Max's unique head shape measurements. The helmet is worn 23 hours per day for several months, channeling head growth by applying gentle pressure on protruding areas while leaving room for growth in depressed areas, redirecting growth.

"Joe was very friendly and patient, and his easy manner made an otherwise nervous and anxious experience pleasant," said Max's mother, Anne Kornhauser.

Nouveau uses the STARscanner, a revolutionary Class 1 eye-safe laser system that allows a child's head to be scanned in less than two seconds. Providing detailed measurements, the scanner process is faster and cleaner than plaster casting formerly used to obtain the same information. STARscanner measurements are regularly obtained before, during and after treatment to ensure the best helmet fit and optimal outcomes.

"This conservative form of treatment often eliminates the necessity of more extreme intervention," said Stuart Weiner, CPO of Nouveau Prosthetics and Orthotics. "The use of this scanner provides an exact helmet fit and the data reveals to physicians and reimbursement sources just how well cranial remodeling is progr
