Frequently Asked Questions

Will my baby get used to wearing the helmet?2021-04-14T16:51:49+00:00

Babies do extremely well with remolding helmets. In fact, they usually grow accustomed to them more quickly than their parents do.

Do they wear the helmet in the car seat?2021-04-14T16:51:34+00:00

Yes! It is recommended that your baby wear the helmet 23 hours a day. Following the wearing schedule is the most important factor for a successful outcome. He or she will wear the helmet while sleeping, in the car seat, and everywhere they go!

How long will my baby need to wear his/her helmet?2021-04-14T16:51:13+00:00

There are many factors that contribute to the length of time a helmet is required for the most successful outcomes. Babies typically wear helmets for 3-6 months, however we recommend you speak with your clinician at your local Transcend office for a better estimation of how long your baby will need to wear their helmet.

Does my insurance pay for the helmet?2021-04-21T15:55:45+00:00

While each insurance is different, helmets are covered by most policies. There are some policies that expressly list cranial remolding orthoses as non-covered items, but this is rare. There may be an out-of-pocket expense for families. This will vary depending upon how much of the annual deductible has been met, the amount of the co-pay and the policy’s allowed amount. Our knowledgeable staff will guide you through the process so there are no surprises.

Is a cranial remolding helmet used for only cosmetic purposes?2021-04-14T16:50:31+00:00

No, a cranial remolding helmet is worn for both cosmetic and reconstructive treatment. The helmet will create or facilitate improved symmetry and shape by guiding the growth of the head.

Will my baby lose their hair?2021-04-14T16:50:08+00:00

No, babies do not lose their hair while wearing the helmet. Their hair will continue to grow quite well!
