Southeastern Cranial Helmets
At Southeastern O & P, our pediatric care philosophy is that kids should be treated like kids. Our clinicians are parents too and we take a child-centered approach to communication and treatment for our young patients. For more than 20 years, our clinicians have been lovingly fitting babies with cranial helmets and would love to help your baby, too.
If your child is diagnosed with deformational plagiocephaly, brachycephaly or scaphocephaly and is less than 12 months old, cranial remolding may be prescribed to correct the shape of your baby’s head. Helmets must be prescribed by a licensed physician. It’s important to note that not all infants are good candidates for helmet therapy, and it is important to discuss this with your doctor. In addition, children who have undergone endoscopy to correct craniosynostosis will often be prescribed helmet therapy after surgery to further correct the shape of the head.
We use high-tech scanning technology that is safe for babies and takes only a few minutes.
Southeastern O & P is equipped with a portable, state-of-the-art Starband Scanner created by the leader in cranial helmet technology, Orthomerica. We offer scans at any of our locations in Chattanooga or Cleveland Tennessee and we can also come to your physician's or therapist's clinic to scan your baby. Many times this makes it easier on the family and patient to be in an environment that is comfortable and familiar.
With this technology, we can:
- Capture the image with no casting needed
- Provide comprehensive print-outs that track the baby’s progress
- Provide pre- and post-operative scans for plagiocephaly and craniosynostosis
- Create each patient a custom helmet that is easily modified as treatment progresses
