We had our free evaluation with Cranial Technologies today. The evaluation went very well and was incredibly informative. I LOVE the doctor - she was so energetic and had ample information. She commended us on our work with his neck tightening (torticollis). She said that his neck looks awesome and the hard part is over. She said that Tigh is a perfect candidate for the helmet and that it will help with his left plagiocephaly (flat part on back left side) and help round out the right front side of his head which will help with his ear alignment and symmetry in face. His head length and width measurements are okay - its the measurements of front left to back right and front right to back left which are off. "Perfect" is to be off by 2-4mm and he is off by 15mm. She mentioned that she is off by 4-6mm so she included is not perfect. The measurements really helped to have the comparison and a goal.
We took pictures today and we able to take them home which we hadn't been able to do from the craniofacial specialist we have been seeing. We will hear back in 1-2 business days from the insurance specialist to know the cost and to make our next appointment for the digital scan to send to the helmet manufacturers.
I'm (shockingly) excited about this opportunity for Tigh and I'm looking forward to helping make him even more perfect than he already is.
