Since receiving 510k clearance from the FDA in 2000, more than 50,000 infants have been treated with the STARband. The STARband is the most widely used cranial remolding orthosis in the world.
How the STARband works
The STARband cranial remolding orthosis redirects head growth to improve proportion and symmetry, and derives their name from its purpose—Symmetry Through Active Remolding. The STARband is designed to provide total contact over the prominent or bossed areas of the baby’s head to discourage additional growth there. The inside of the band is modified to provide extra space in the areas of the head that are flat or depressed. The baby’s rapid head growth, especially during the first year of life and the shape of the band direct growth into the areas of least resistance and create a precise pathway for growth to occur. As your baby’s head shape improves, the practitioner will make adjustments to further accommodate these improvements.
A wide variety of STARband pattern and color options are available for parents to choose from. Please note there is no additional charge for this customization, and availability of transfer pattern designs may be subject to change. See sample pattern options below:
