Our cranial remoulding helmets – or LOCbands – are manufactured individually for each baby to the clinician’s exact specifications and the manufacturing process is also overseen by a clinician. Our LOCbands are made to strict guidelines and high quality standards by LOC Manufacturing Ltd, located at our Kingston clinic.
They are created with a soft-to-the-touch foam lining and are available in many different colours and patterns. You can see a selection of available designs below.
(Please note that transfer colours may vary once they are heated and draped over an orthosis during the manufacturing process).

Custom Painted Helmets
If you’re looking for a more personal design - maybe a favourite colour, a pattern from your baby's room, a favourite quote, toy, cartoon character or image, or something that is unique to your family or your heritage - LOC have a relationship with Abigail Jones, a Southampton-based artist who offers a custom painting service for LOCband cranial remoulding helmets.
Prices are dependent on the complexity of design but start at £150 for general designs such as flying helmets, floral or patterned designs. Designs featuring complex characters (i.e. Disney or cartoon characters) start from £200.
