McWhirt's clinic prefers the Orthomerica STARscanner system, a revolutionary, eye-safe laser system that scans a child's head in under two seconds. Providing detailed measurements, it is faster and cleaner than the plaster casting formerly used to obtain the same information.

"Amelia was one of the first children to benefit from the STARscanner at our clinic," McWhirt said. "This system allows necessary information to be taken easily before, during, and after treatment allowing for the best possible fit of the helmet, as well as providing important clinical data along the way."

After wearing the STARband helmet for a little more than four months and visiting Floyd Brace Company every other week for adjustment, Amelia completed STARband treatment much earlier than anticipated.

"We were so worried that the helmet would be uncomfortable for Amelia, and that it would effect her development," Sandin said. "But she did fantastic with it, and the entire process just became very routine. We actually had to wean her off of wearing the helmet. Now it's sitting on one of the dolls in her room. We wish that this didn't have to happen, but it worked, and we were blessed with the technology and the professionals to take care of it."
