In 2008, our baby was diagnosed with a cranial deformity when he was only two months old. Our concern led us to start researching these pathologies with the idea of finding out what we had done wrong, how we could correct the problem and, above all, how we could have prevented it. Our surprise was to find ourselves in front of a great lack of information, so we decided to create INFOCEFALIA.
This space is aimed at both parents and health professionals. Our purpose is to spread information about the prevention and correction of positional head deformities, to provide diagnostic tools to health professionals and to give support to other parents who are in the same situation as we were in our day. We would also like to clarify that we do not take a position for or against any particular treatment. Both prevention, orthopaedic helmets and surgery are solutions to this problem and we have seen this with our children.
Finally, we would like to remind you that the content collected on our website should never replace the advice of a health professional.
We trust that the information collected on this website will be of great interest and help to you.
