Steve presents nationally and internationally on cranial remoulding treatment and continues to be involved in research and development.

“We are truly grateful for everything that you’ve done for Noah. We are so happy with the shape of his head – he has come a long way with his helmets and I know that this would not have been possible without the TiMband. Your work is amazing and you really put our minds at ease. Prior to your help we were stressed and upset about the severity of Noah’s head. It was like a weight had been lifted from our shoulders after our first visit. Thank you for making our son’s head round!!!! WOW!!! Eternally Grateful! Thanks Again!!”

From Claire, Tom and Noah Bardon
