C R A N I A L R E M O L D I N G O RT H O S I S The STAR family of cranial remolding orthoses are used to treat deformational plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, scaphocephaly and other head shape deformities in infants 3-18 months of age. Thousands of infants have been successfully treated with the STARband, which was the first cranial orthosis available to O&P practitioners across the United States with FDA clearance in 2000. Orthomerica later applied for and received FDA clearance for the STARlight and Clarren Helmet. These orthoses can be used to effectively manage a broad spectrum of head shape deformities and clinical indications. The Clarren Helmet was designed by Sterling Clarren, MD, and has been used successfully for 23 years. Dr. Clarren developed the first cranial remolding orthosis and treatment protocols for orthotic care, and published the results in 1979. STARscanner™ I The STARscanner* laser data acquisition system, from I Orthomerica, allows O & P I practitioners to document and compare infant head shape data before, during, and after orthotic I treatment of positional plagiocephaly. Scans replace the traditional casting process and take only 2.5 I seconds. Treatment progress can be evaluated and documented with printed reports for referring physicians, research studies, insurance companies, and caregivers. I Orthomerica’s cranial remolding orthoses can be fabricated from a positive modified cast, unmodified cast, or a scan of the infant’s head using the STARscanner. Turnaround time for fabrication is 5 days. The STARband, STARlight and Clarren Helmet designs provide total contact over the prominent areas of the skull and leave voids over the flattened areas to provide a pathway for more symmetrical skull growth. The STARlight Bi-Valved design is effective for treating scaphocephaly and other head shape deformities. Treatment generally takes 3 - 4 months, but varies depending on the infant’s age and severity of cranial asymmetry. Clinical consultation is available through our staff of ABC certified orthotists.
