We grow with your child.

Calgary Children’s Headshape Clinic

Colman Prosthetics and Orthotics is excited to announce our new Calgary Children’s Headshape Clinic in partnership with Judy Mair BSc OT and Orthomerica.  Last year, the headshape clinic at Alberta Children’s Hospital was cancelled, leaving families in pressing need of guidance for children with head shaped deformities.  We are enthusiastic and have been working hard to fill this void in the community.

Judy has worked as a paediatric occupational therapist for 40+ years at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. For the past 15 years she has been a leader in the clinical side of the headshape clinic.  As well as being an expert on cranial remoulding orthoses (helmets), Judy can provide detailed recommendations for children that do not require a helmet, including repositioning, physiotherapy referral, etc.

Judy will be working alongside our certified Orthotists, Matt Menard BSc CPO (c) and Melissa Church MSc CO (c), to deliver outstanding patient care and effective cranial treatment. Both Matt and Melissa are certified in the STARband Cranial Course and are experienced and practicing Orthotists certified by Orthotics Prosthetics Canada.
