Audra Marie O'Dair gets it

Meet Audra Marie O'Dair. Like a lot of other babies, Audra must temporarily wear a corrective helmet – the process is called cranial orthosis – to treat plagiocephaly, or "head flattening" that will sometimes occur due to the soft skulls we all have when we start life.

The corrective helmets have been in use since 1979 and have an established track record of safely and successfully treating plagiocephaly. Thousands of babies each year will wear the helmets for a few months to start their lives, but only Audra is earning helmet stickers for her progress.
