When I noticed my sons Plagiocephaly/Brachycephaly was becoming more severe (even after Physio) I contacted Zortex Orthotics. They were extremely professional and spoke me through the process of scanning to assess his head severity and potentially using helmet therapy to assist in correcting his head shape. There was absolutely no pressure to commit to a helmet after the scan, it simply gave us an indication on where his head shape was on the scale.
We decided to go ahead with a helmet and were very pleased with Zortex who sourced the helmet from Serkel, fitted the helmet and did monthly scans to monitor improvement.
Zortex were very quick to respond to any questions we had and happy for me to bring my son into their office for check-ups if there were any concerns with the helmet fitting. My son wore his helmet for 4 months in total and we are very happy with the results.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to any parent who is concerned with their baby’s head shape.
Everyone suggested it would fix itself by a year old! This never happened and we decided we needed to begin the helmet therapy before it was too late to fix.
The Zortex team were absolutely amazing! There was no pressure at all to start the therapy! After the initial head scan his report was severe on the scale. We made up our minds straight away and began treatment.
Within weeks of the initial scan we received our helmet! Our boy was 13 months so we were concerned about him no coping with wearing the helmet but to our shock he had absolutely no issues with wearing it at all! The first night he wore it he slept through with out a fuss!!
Our treatment process took 4 months and we were so pleased with the results with our child now being in the mild/ moderate scale!
If you are sitting on the fence about getting treatment, I would suggest to do the helmet therapy it was a no fuss process and we will never regret that we did everything we can for our son!
I was more than happy to learn from my Son’s Physiotherapist that Zortex Orthotics now had a Clinic in West Gosford making the Central Coast families to easily get their child’s Orthotics done locally, especially during the Covid times!
I am very pleased with their service right from booking appointments till getting the AFOs ready in 2 weeks time. Throughout this time, Sue communicated with me to understand my requirements for my child’s AFOs. They even happily accommodated my last minute request for the right Billy Shoes to fit the new AFOs.
I’m very happy that we can now avoid 2 visits to Sydney for my son’s Orthotics, especially during the lockdown and Covid restrictions in place.
I can happily recommend Zortex to other Central Coast families to get their Child’s perfectly done AFOs through Zortex Orthotics.
