Title
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DETECTING PLAGIOCEPHALY IN INFANTS
(FR) APPAREIL ET MÉTHODE POUR DÉTECTER UNE PLAGIOCÉPHALIE CHEZ DES NOURRISSONS
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed are devices and methods for detecting plagiocephaly in infants. The one- piece, semi-rigid device is positioned on the infant by placing the caliper's ear-tips in the infant's ears and positioning a planar connector segment approximately under the nose. A physician or caregiver can visually detect plagiocephaly by detecting misalignment between a center marker on the planar segment and the midline of the infant's nose.
(FR)
L'invention a pour objet des appareils et des méthodes pour détecter une plagiocéphalie chez des nourrissons. L'appareil d'une pièce semi-rigide est positionné sur le nourrisson en plaçant les embouts du pied à coulisse dans les oreilles du nourrisson et en plaçant un segment de connecteur plan approximativement sous le nez. Un médecin ou un personnel soignant peut détecter visuellement une plagiocéphalie en détectant le mauvais alignement entre un marqueur central sur le segment plan et la ligne médiane du nez du nourrisson.
