SoftSpot addresses the pressing concern of head shape abnormalities in infants, such as plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, and scaphocephaly. These conditions, often resulting from external pressures on the soft skulls of young infants, can lead to long-term cosmetic and developmental issues. By measuring the head early, SoftSpot informs parents to take proactive steps in preventing and treating these common yet overlooked conditions. Through repositioning and conservative treatment, infants with flat head can grow with healthier head symmetry.

  • What is SoftSpot, and how can it help me monitor my baby's head shape?
    SoftSpot is an app that uses your phone's camera to take photos and subsequently generate reports that measure your baby's head shape. The report, in conjunction with other clinical methods, is used to identify any potential asymmetries or flat spots, which can be early signs of plagiocephaly. This information can be valuable for discussing any concerns with your pediatrician and proactively supporting your baby's health.
  • Is SoftSpot compatible with my smartphone?
    Absolutely! SoftSpot is versatile and compatible, designed for both Android and iOS platforms, making it accessible on a wide range of smartphones.
  • Is my data safe with SoftSpot?
    Yes, your data's security and confidentiality are paramount to us. SoftSpot employs robust security protocols and is compliant with HIPAA and other data privacy standards to ensure your baby's information is rigorously protected.
  • How accurate are SoftSpot's head shape measurements?
    SoftSpot analyzes photos using advanced algorithms for precise measurements. It is FDA 510k-cleared and supported by scientific publications and clinical studies.
  • Can SoftSpot help me detect plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome)?
    Yes, SoftSpot can help you and your provider detect plagiocephaly early by allowing you to measure the Cranial Index (CI) and Cranial Vault Asymmetry Index (CVAI). Early identification can lead to more timely and effective interventions. Please note that SoftSpot is intended to calculate and display physical measurements of the head for interpretation by a qualified user in conjunction with other clinical methods.
  • Is SoftSpot suitable for all babies? Is there an age limit?
    SoftSpot is FDA-cleared for infants from one month to 2 years old. It is particularly beneficial for infants up to 6-7 months old, a critical period for head shape development, but remains a valuable tool for monitoring head growth at any age within the cleared range.
  • Is SoftSpot easy for non-tech-savvy parents?
    Yes, SoftSpot is a measurement tool that is designed to be user-friendly for everyone, regardless of technical expertise. The interface is simple and intuitive, guiding you through taking pictures and viewing reports. Clear instructions and support are available to help you navigate the app confidently.
  • How often should I use SoftSpot to monitor my baby's head?
    Consistent monitoring is critical, so using SoftSpot once a month is generally recommended. Your pediatrician might advise different frequencies based on your baby's individual needs.
  • How does the consultation with a physical therapist work, and what can I expect from it?
    At SoftSpot, we offer three tailored consultation sessions with our physical therapists to support your baby's head development journey.
