The Boston Band is a lightweight foam and plastic helmet that treats a number of types of cranial asymmetry, including positional plagiocephaly by providing a pathway for the infant’s head to grow into a more symmetrical shape.
The Plagio Cradle is a sleep surface that was invented by Dr. Gary Rogers, MD, JD, MBA, MPH and James Miller, CPO, Clinical Director of Boston O&P at Boston Children's Hospital. Both men are recognized experts in treating children with Plagiocephaly.
This product is intended for use by infants between 1 to 3 months of age. It is currently dispensed by prescription through Orthotic clinics with follow up during use by a certified orthotist. Use of this product must be discontinued when a baby is able to roll over.
The Cuddle Cup is the second product created in this product line. It is a smaller version of the Plagio Cradle which is intended exclusively for use for babies in hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Units. This product has recently been sublicensed to DandleLIONmedical. They are in the process of making further enhancements to the product and should be marketing it in the near future.
