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.

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.

This pilot project proposes to develop and test a new device to manage (defined as resolving, prohibiting, inhibiting or preventing) the development of Deformational Plagiocephaly (DP) in ...
The aim of this trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of osteopathic manipulative therapy in reducing the asymmetries of skull in infants with nonsynostotic plagiocephaly.
Babies 4-7 months of age with positional plagiocephaly will be treated with repositional techniques verse helmet therapy. The helmet therapy children will be fitted a helmet at Westcoast ...
This study evaluates the efficacy of Pediatric Manual Therapy in the treatment of positional plagiocephaly in infants. 40 participants will receive a protocol of Pediatric Manual Therapy a...
The purpose of this study is to examine a group of patients requiring helmet therapy (either patients with plagiocephaly or post-surgical patients) to compare outcomes of infants treated w...
Anterior plagiocephaly is a type of non-syndromic craniosynostosis requiring surgery. In this study, the authors have presented 15 neglected patients with anterior plagiocephaly. Two of patients had m...
To analyze the clinical significance of the periorbital features associated with the facial asymmetry that is common in deformational posterior plagiocephaly (DPP).
: media-1vid110.1542/5972296741001PEDS-VA_2018-2373 BACKGROUND: Studies have revealed an association between positional plagiocephaly and/or brachycephaly (PPB) and development, although little is kno...
Though positional posterior plagiocephaly (PPP) is considered common in infants since the pediatric recommendations of "Back to Sleep", several aspects of its natural history still remain unclear. The...
In the last years, numerous studies evaluated different tools for the diagnosis of positional plagiocephaly (PP). The purpose of this study was to evaluate ultrasonography (US) as a first line screeni...
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. It includes programs that are designed to prevent handicapping conditions in infants and young children and family-centered programs designed to affect the functioning of infants and children with special needs.
