Therapiehelm für Kinder

How therapy helmets work

The therapy helmet is made based on a plaster cast or 3D scan of your child’s head. It applies light corrective pressure on the prominent areas, transferring growth to the less developed areas. The helmet is padded inside to prevent uncomfortable pressure points. Improvements in your child’s head shape should be noticeable within a few weeks.

It is important to start therapy early to achieve the best possible therapeutic success. Usually, treatment of head deformity is completed after 6 months.

Therapy helmet manufacturing

The therapy helmets from Sanitätshaus Ergonomic Care GmbH are made of carbon fiber lightweight construction. The helmets are therefore particularly light while providing maximum stability and shape retention. This allows for optimal placement of the correction point. 

A perforation in the forehead area ensures breathability and prevents sweating.

The closure is designed so that the head can grow along with it 

The therapy helmet in everyday use

Consistent wearing of the helmet is important in the treatment of head deformity. 
The little patient should be gradually accustomed to wearing the helmet. Initially, a few minutes are sufficient, and this should be gradually increased to several hours a day.

If pressure marks or redness appear after removing the helmet, please contact us immediately to check the fit again.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is a therapy helmet?

    A therapy helmet is a cranial orthosis that performs skull reshaping. This non-invasive treatment approach corrects abnormal skull shapes.

  • How long should the therapy helmet be worn?

    The helmet should be worn as long as possible at a time. An optimal result is achieved if the helmet is worn continuously.

    The helmet can of course be removed for personal hygiene.

  • Is an individual therapy helmet covered by health insurance?

    Yes, if you have a doctor’s prescription for an individual therapy helmet. In that case, we only need your prescription and will then take care of the cost coverage by the health insurance, you don’t need to do anything else.

  • What material is a therapy helmet made of?

    Our custom-made therapy helmets are primarily made of carbon fiber. We process it in casting resin or prepreg processes. Additionally, materials such as aramid fiber, fiberglass, and various plastics are also used. Our orthopedic technicians will explain what your individual leg orthosis will look like at your consultation appointment.

  • Therapy helmet made of carbon or plastic

    Carbon is characterized by its high strength with relatively low weight. Thus, we can produce very light therapy helmets. However, the disadvantage is that carbon cannot be reshaped afterward. Here is where plastic comes into play. The big advantage of plastic is that it is thermoplastically deformable. However, it is not as stable as carbon. As you can see, it is not easy to determine in advance which material is most suitable for you. That is why we discuss each supply extensively with you together.

  • Therapy helmet in 3D printing or carbon casting process

    Ich bin ein so genannter Untertitel.

    We have tried various manufacturing processes in our specialized workshop. Indeed, the carbon casting resin process based on a plaster cast of the head has proven to be particularly suitable.

    The plaster cast ensures an optimal mold even for very active children.

    The 3D scan also works very well and precisely but only if the child can keep the head still for an extended period.

    The carbon fibers are currently still superior to 3D printing in terms of lightness with high stability.

    If you are unsure which process is right for you, come by and get advised by us.
