STARband™

The STARbandis an FDA - approved thermoplastic shell with a soft foam liner. It is custom-molded to the infant’s head. As the child grows, the STARband™ acts as a guide to gradually allow the head to reshape. The band is available by prescription only.

It is easy to wear and easy to clean.

The band can be decorated with fun patterns and designs.

STARscanner™

The STARscanner™ is an FDA-approved laser data acquisition system. The scanner records three-dimensional (3D) information about the infant’s head shape in 1.5 seconds.

The non-invasive laser is safe for the eyes and non-invasive. The scanner eliminates the need for the traditional plaster casting procedure to create a mold of the head.

Scans provide ongoing quantitative data for physicians, orthotic practitioners and parents to monitor changes in head shape.
