Which Cranial Helmet is Best for Plagiocephaly?

Plagiocephaly, also called “flat head syndrome,” is a relatively common condition characterized by a flat spot on the back or side of a baby’s head. If left untreated it can result in the head being permanently misshapen, which can cause other issues including facial asymmetry, difficulty fitting helmets and eyeglasses, and jaw misalignment.

Boston O&P is the only company that offers several options for both the prevention and treatment of plagiocephaly, including an affordable helmet solution that achieves results quickly and effectively.
