Achieving Success With Cranial Remolding
It is estimated that 1 in 5 infants has some degree of asymmetry or plagiocephaly, also known as "flat head syndrome".
Tandem Orthotics and Prosthetics specializes in providing STARband cranial remolding headband treatment for infants with plagiocephaly. The STARband is the most prescribed cranial remolding orthosis in the world, setting the industry's gold standard.
Tandem Orthotics & Prosthetics is proud to report our successful treatment of approximately 1000 infants in Central Minnesota with STARband since 2001. Our clinic's advocacy has been key in obtaining insurance coverage for this necessary medical service, benefiting both our community and our state.
