OUR TREATMENT PROCESS

Cranial Remolding Orthoses (CRO) encourage the skull to become symmetrical and/or proportional by holding areas we don’t want to grow and promote growth into the void areas. The CRO’s do not squeeze the babies head into shape, rather provide space for the flattened area of the skull to grown into. Cranial remolding orthoses derive their name from their purpose — symmetry through active remolding.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once we have a carried out an assessment of your baby’s head shape we discuss the best options moving forward for your baby.

  1. If there are no medical or cosmetic concerns, we provide education on repositioning products and/or techniques and would suggest discharge.

  2. If the head shape is not severe for the age of child but there is potential for concern, we provide education on repositioning and offer a re-scan appointment to track the progress of your child's head shape.

  3. If the head shape asymmetry requires intervention, we will discuss our ROKband Treatment Program with the family and explain how to enrol into treatment.

WHEN CAN WE START TREATMENT?

Based on an initial consultation, mild deformities will be documented and monitored. We would recommend a ROKband if skull deformity is moderate to severe. The optimal time for intervention is 3 – 6 months, however infants can be treated up to the age of 18 months, provided their cranial sutures are still open.
