Level Four has the STARscanner™!

The STARscanner is an effective and trusted system, used by leading practitioners and children’s hospitals all over the world for STAR cranial remolding orthosis treatment since 2001. The STARscanner was the first scanning system to receive approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in capturing infant head shape data. The STARscanner remains the only scanning technology that has a published clinical paper that proves the efficacy of treatment for both the scanner and STARband cranial remolding orthosis.
  • Scanning process is eye-safe and takes less than two seconds to complete.
  • Reports are available immediately with detailed head shape measurements and data including volumes, symmetry ratios, circumference, and linear measurements
  • Comparison scans document effectiveness of repositioning and physical therapy
  • Measures efficacy of cranial remolding orthosis treatment by documenting outcomes for physicians and parents.
  • Provides insurance companies with specific measurements, information, and quantitative outcome analysis.

Only One Helmet Needed!

Each helmet is custom made as specified by the Level Four practitioner with the information provided by the STARscanner. After your child’s scan the information is corrected proportionally and symmetrically for the desired outcome. The helmet is made with close to full correction built in which means less follow up visits are necessary and, as long you are compliant, for the majority of patients only one helmet is needed.

Cranial remolding orthoses fall under orthotics and prosthetics, which typically is a sub-section under “Durable Medical Equipment” (DME) under most insurance plans. Check with your insurance company to determine whether your policy includes this coverage. Some carriers will pay for the orthosis if measurements indicate that the baby’s head has a moderate to severe deformity and your physician writes a letter stating that a custom cranial orthosis is medically necessary. This letter may also specify whether the deformity was present at birth and highlight potential problems that might occur if the problem is not treated at this time. These problems may include visual tracking problems, temporal mandibular joint disorders (TMJ), and developmental issues.
