2019-07-10 17:55:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Investigating the optimal usage time of helmet therapy is the aim of the study. Participants will be babies with deformational plagiocephaly. Plagiocephalometric assesments will be utilize to follow improvement of head symmetry. Scales asking sensational integration and severity of plagiocephaly will also be used. Time of daily usage will be follow with daily asking the caregivers how long the baby wear the helmet in a day. Participants will follow for three months.

Description

Investigating the optimal usage time of helmet therapy is the aim of the study. Participants will be babies with deformational plagiocephaly. Plagiocephalometric assesments will be utilize to follow improvement of head symmetry. Scales asking sensational integration and severity of plagiocephaly will also be used. Time of daily usage will be follow with daily asking the caregivers how long the baby wear the helmet in a day. Participants will follow for three months. After the follow period completed, participants will be allocated two groups; avarage using 15-18 hours a day and avarage using 19-23 hours a day. Results will be compared for the two groups and correlation between the time of usage and cranial symmetry will be compare.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The condition characterized by uneven or irregular shape of the head often in parallelogram shape with a flat spot on the back or one side of the head. It can either result from the premature CRANIAL SUTURE closure (CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS) or from external forces (NONSYNOSTOTIC PLAGIOCEPHALY).

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

A deformity of the SKULL that is not due to bone fusion (SYNOSTOSIS), such as CRANIOSYNOSTOSES, and is characterized by an asymmetric skull and face. It is observed with increased frequencies in INFANTS after the adoption of supine sleeping recommendations to prevent SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME.

Procedures and programs that facilitate the development or skill acquisition in infants and young children who have disabilities, who are at risk for developing disabilities, or who are gifted.
