Successful Flat Head Helmet Treatment for Alice

Alice Completes TiMBand Treatment

Alice graduated today from her TiMband treatment

We’d like to share Alice’s Plagioocephaly and Bracycephaly story with you. Alice’s Mum and Dad, Leanne and Craig brought her to see us when she was 5 months of age and they were worried that Alice’s head shape was ‘not right’ and wanted our opinion to see if we could help her. They’d tried repositioning but her head shape wasn’t improving at all.Looking down on the top, a normal head shape should look a bit like an egg with the length front to back being longer than the width. The normal head width is about 4/5 of the length and Alice’s head was much wider than this with the width being 99%, just 1mm narrower than it was long. A wide head shape is called a brachycephaly. Alice also had a difference across the diagonal measurements of 25mm which is quite a severe plagiocephaly.Leanne and Craig decided to ask us to treat her with a TiMband and Alice was discharged today after wearing the helmet for 5 months. She’s had a great result with both the width and the asymmetry coming into the normal range. The asymmetry is now 4mm and the width in relation to the length is 83%.

Here are her before and after scans which show a really nice result and great improvement in symmetry in the face and at the back of the head.

Mum is delighted and cannot believe how amazing Alice’s head looks now.

Well done Alice!!
