Working Together - Micronutrients and Immunity

by Simon Ranger, founder, Seagreens Trust

Our native wild seaweeds are a natural whole food, and a comprehensive source of micronutrients, including the minerals and trace elements critical to immune system function. These include antiviral agents like germanium, gold, selenium, silver, and zinc. Seagreens® is the leading producer of several species exclusively for human nutrition in the British Isles and Nordic region for two decades. A series of original and sometimes award-winning nutrition research studies underpins their non-allergenic ‘nutritious food seaweed’ including its nutritional composition. Seagreens® daily use products for practitioners and consumers have proved safe and effective for over 20 years.

Working Together Micronutrients and Immunity

Nutrition practitioner and writer Ben Brown, a lecturer at BCNH College of Nutrition and Health in London, writes in IHCAN magazine as follows (April, 2020): “Nutritional interventions have a long history of use for viral respiratory tract infections. They have a strong theoretical underpinning, biological plausibility, and some limited clinical evidence of efficacy for the common cold, influenza, and other viral infections. No-one knows if such interventions would be useful for preventing COVID-19 or minimizing its severity, but existing clinical evidence may help inform strategies that help build resilience to infection, especially in high risk or vulnerable people.”

“Given that adequate intake of micronutrients is important for resistance to infection, and that micronutrient deficiencies are a widespread public health issue, it should be no surprise that several clinical studies support the use of nutritional interventions for improving immune function, reducing risk of infection, and expediting clinical recovery.[11] Age-related decline in immune function, including declines in T-cell function and increased chronic low grade inflammation, may be due to a higher prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies in this population. That represents an important opportunity for nutritional interventions that improve immune function.[12] Nutritional interventions, including foods and supplements, may also be used in the absence of overt micronutrient deficiencies to enhance immune function and prevent infections and their complications.”[13]

The full article focuses on Vitamins A and C, N-acetylcysteine, and Zinc in a series exploring micronutrients in the context of the immune system. http://www.seagreens.co.uk/Documents/IHCAN_Coronavirus_pt1,_April_2020.pdf

Sacred Talismans – Bali Mandala Bracelets and Necklaces from Organic Aromatherapy

Mandalas Bring a Feeling of Relaxation. The world mandala comes from Sanskrit, which means “sacred circle/wheel”. Mandalas are circular symbols that are part of many different cultures; Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, and many indigenous tribes use them often as a source of artistic outlet. Some ancient cultures believe that mandalas are linked to our life energy. Wearing them on our bodies can create a powerful feeling of balance and harmony.

“A mandala is the psychological expression of the totality of the self.”-Carl Jung

Alchemy teaches us that silver and gold are very powerful transmitters of energy. In Eastern cultures, people believe that colours connect us to certain chakras. Chakras are energy forces/valves/wheels linked to our bodies. They help with our physical, mental emotional and spiritual well-being keeping a balance in each relating to specific areas and organs. My daughter Bexie Williams, who lives in Bali, dreamt these beautiful pieces into being. She found a master craftsman, and had them made locally. Within a few weeks we had customers on 5 countries wearing them from Australia to Chile!

Bali Mandala Bracelets and Necklaces from Organic Aromatherapy

The bracelets and necklaces made for Organic Aromatherapy are made with recycled silver and gold (3 microns of gold plate over silver) by craftsmen and women in Bali Indonesia, with love and smiles. The Sacred Talismans are available only from our website. http://www.organic-aromatherapy.co.uk/shop/talismans

We love to support the local people and their families. The money goes directly into their hands; each piece of jewellery is blessed in ceremonial sacred space, empowering each piece further. All pieces are unique and handmade individually so they may vary slightly. We offer necklaces in 2 lengths (36cms and 50cms) in 9 designs connecting to the 7 main chakras, an OM pyramid, and a sacred spiral. Each design is also available with matching bracelets on strong, beautifully handwoven adjustable cords ( available in specific chakra colours or on simple black). Men and women both love them and some even wear them as anklets! Spirals are incredibly powerful sacred symbols in themselves, occurring everywhere in natural world from the helix of DNA, to the galaxy itself.

The necklace is also available in a sacred Triangle with an Om depicted inside and is gold plate on a fine silver chain. This combines the energy of the sacred symbols of the triangle (pyramid) and a spiral and an Om symbol, also the Gold( divine masculine) and silver (divine feminine) energies which are so important now. The feedback we have had in just one year of trials with them is inspirational.

Mandalas are good for your well-being because they have chakra/sacred symbols in them. Possible benefits of wearing these beautiful and powerful talismans on your body:

  • They help with balance;
  • They can bring peace and tranquillity;
  • Inducing feelings of calm and peace;
  • The feel-good factor of wearing a limited edition, handcrafted piece of jewellery.

Results RNA ACZ Nano – How do I Safely and Easily Remove Heavy Metals?

Heavy Metals have long been recognized to cause serious long term harm to humans health. Effects include damage to the immune system, central nervous system and heart. Inorganic mercury can also damage the kidneys. The developing brains of foetuses and young children are especially vulnerable. Children exposed to methylmercury while they are in the womb can have impacts to their:

  • Cognitive thinking;
  • Memory;
  • Attention;
  • Language;
  • Fine motor skills;
  • Visual spatial skills.

We are exposed to mercury is mainly through pollution in the air (coal burning is responsible for a great deal of this), eating fish and the release of inorganic mercury from amalgam fillings. Removing heavy metals has always been a challenge often requiring expensive treatments like intravenous DMPS or EDTA. These also remove valuable nutrients from the body and have to be replaced or other problems can arise. Others use nutritionals like chlorella and coriander, these can redeposit the metals in other places in the body, like the brain or other essential organs. There is also very little data on actually how effective these are in helping the body to remove the metals. Fortunately, there is solution to this called - ACZ Nano, a natural zeolite in liquid form, independently proven results.

ACZ Nano + Excretion Test Results

ACZ Nano Extra Strength has been developed especially for heavy metal detoxification. ACZ Nano is one of the best and safest chelators available. This natural zeolite (a type of volcanic ash) has a cage like structure that irreversably binds heavy metals and removes them via the urinary system. Other chelators can actually mobilize the metals and then redeposit them to other parts of the body, ACZ will not do this. It also has the highest affinity for the heaviest elements, so will preferentially bind Mercury before say Aluminium and because it has been pre-treated with Ca, K and Mg, it will replace the toxic metal with one that the body actually requires. It is independently proven to be able to increase urinary output of Mercury by over a 1000 times.

  • It is also been shown to remove volatile organic compounds like PCP’s and DDT as well as fluorine and chlorine.
  • For the safest, most effective, proven detoxification - choose Results RNA.

June Sayer of Sayer Complementary Health has over 24 years’ experience as a homeopathic practitioner and during that time has worked with clients with a wide variety of ailments. At this particular time of uncertainty there will no doubt be a lot of emotional issues coming to the fore. When people experience anxiety, sadness, insecurity, anger, resentment and loss of confidence there are a number of homeopathic remedies that could be of benefit in helping people overcome these issues. Children will, naturally, be finding it difficult to understand why they are being asked to remain indoors; the result could be irritability with their parents and their siblings particularly as their normal routine has been put out of balance and contact with their friends is restricted to the use of social media. 

June Sayer + Homeopathy + Reiki

All consultations at this time are being held via Skype, WhatsApp or Facetime;  carefully chosen homeopathic remedies suited to the individual’s health concerns are posted out direct to their home. When the situation changes, appointments can be resumed at June’s practice in Burnham on Crouch, Essex. June also provides training courses in Homeopathy and Reiki. The Homeopathy at Home course is designed to help people learn how to select homeopathic remedies to address minor ailments such as coughs, colds, headaches and sore throats and may even negate the need for a visit to the doctor. Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, non-addictive and safe for all ages.  This course is easily accessible via Zoom – just contact June for further details.

The full Homeopathic Practitioner Diploma course is an in-depth apprenticeship style course spread over three years.  This course will introduce you to the history and philosophy of homeopathy, and give you an understanding of anatomy and physiology and pathology and disease. You will also learn how to differentiate between an acute case and a more chronic condition and how to select the most appropriate homeopathic remedy.  Home study and written assignments are essential to the course.  Upon successful completion of all the necessary criteria you will be entitled to register as a homeopathic practitioner with a registering organization and build your career as a homeopath.

June is a Reiki Master/Teacher and holds regular Reiki courses in Essex, but while social distancing is being practised, Reiki distant healing is being sent regularly to all her Reiki students.  For information there are three levels of Reiki that are taught.  Level one and two are one-day courses.  Shoden, level one opens you up to the healing power of Reiki and enables you to carry out Reiki healing on yourself and your family.  Reiki level 2 Okuden, is suitable for people who have already studied level one and are familiar with the Reiki healing energy. At the end of level two, you will be able to offer Reiki sessions to the general public although you will need to have the relevant complementary health insurance cover in place to do so.  Pre-course material is provided for both Shoden and Okuden so that you may study the materials prior to attending the practical course.  A Certificate of Attendance is provided on completion.  Should you wish to take your Reiki one stage further then the Reiki Master/Teacher Course also comes complete with a comprehensive manual as well as audio and visual materials; it is this course you would need to undertake in order for you to be able to prepare others on their journey with Reiki.   Reiki consultations are held in Burnham on Crouch, Essex.

The Wonders of Structured Water 

The roots of our business are very much in water, and we are now beginning to see some very exciting research confirming what we knew intuitively: that good water is essential for life, for energy and for our immune system. When we say good water, we are referring to water that is free of contaminants and has good structure.

Jug Front High Res

We are 99% water by molecules, so it makes sense to drink the sort of water that will promote optimal hydration; that will be absorbed at the cellular level rather than simply passing through us. The water that is reliably found in nature – in springs and streams, in waterfalls – is very different from the sort that ends up flowing from our tap. It is known as structured water, and has the molecular structure of H3O2 rather than H2O.

The preeminent scientist studying this form of water is Dr Gerald Pollack of the University of Washington in Seattle, and his research is documented in his excellent book The Fourth Phase of Water. As explained by Dr Pollack, H3O2 is denser and boasts more oxygen than regular H2O. Moreover, it holds an electrical charge. This structured water does more than hydrate: it energises and vitalises. What’s more, because the cell’s water itself is structured, structured water – also known as EZ water – better adheres to the proteins of cells, resulting in superior absorption. The fourth phase means that structured water sits somewhere between liquid water and crystal.

At Water for Health, we have long been fascinated by the concept of water structure, though in the past we tended to focus more of our attention on alkalinity and the antioxidant potential of water. However, it increasingly appears that good water structure is responsible for much of the beneficial effect that we had previously credited to an alkaline pH or the antioxidant effect.

In our various water products, bioceramics are used to change the water in positive ways. Some of these bioceramics (which are combinations of natural minerals and crystals formed into ceramic balls) improve water structure. In our view, drinking good health-promoting structured water is one of the easiest and most effective ways to nourish your cells and protect them from attack.

The Biocera Alkaline Filter Jug is a great starting point for those who want to drink structured water. The jug has been a best-seller of ours for a number of years, although many customers probably buy it simply because it increases the water’s pH or infuses it with molecular hydrogen, an emerging antioxidant. The jug also filters chlorine and reduces heavy metal content. In our view, the structuring effect might just be the most important aspect.

Magnesium – What do we Know About it?

Magnesium is a mineral that is plentiful in our natural environment and within our bodies. Next to potassium, it is the 2nd most abundant ion found within our cells and is vital for numerous physiological functions. Scientists have identified that magnesium is involved in the activation of more than 300 enzymes and body compounds and is a key component for energy and metabolism.

Top 7 Benefits of Magnesium

  1. Skeletal health - magnesium helps to regulate calcium within the teeth and bones.
  2. Stress relief - magnesium works alongside vitamin C, B6, B5 and zinc to maintain adrenal health and produce adrenal stress hormones.
  3. Hormonal health - magnesium has a significant effect on female hormones and is linked to fluid retention, weight gain and breast pain, all common for women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Research shows that premenstrual mood swings are often helped by magnesium supplementation.
  4. Energy production and diabetes - magnesium is particularly critical to energy production and has a critical role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and the synthesis and secretion of insulin.
  1. Cardiovascular health - magnesium works alongside calcium, sodium and potassium to control the muscle tone of blood vessels and because of this has been studied extensively for its role in cardiovascular disease.
  2. Sleep quality - studies show that magnesium deficiency affects sleep, thought to be due to its effect on circadian rhythms and melatonin production, which are both involved in the sleep/wake cycle. Supplementing with magnesium has been found to improve insomnia in elderly people.

Tell-Tale Signs of Magnesium Deficiency

agitation – anxiety – insomnia – irritability - restless legs - nausea – vomiting – palpitations - low blood pressure – confusion - muscle spasm - muscle weakness – hyperventilation - poor nail growth – seizures

altrient-liposomal-magnesium-l-threonate

Top Up with a Liposomal Magnesium Supplement

Supplementation may be highly recommended for the elderly and women with PMS, heavy menstruation or menstrual cramps. This supplement can be of great benefit during times of stress or for those in poor health, or for those with fatigue, diabetes or other certain medical conditions. But choosing an effective supplement is the key. The manufacturers of Altrient products have responded to the worrying global deficiency in magnesium by producing a premium bioavailable liposomal magnesium supplement which is even suitable for those with gut impairments. The beauty of oral liposomal formulations compared to standard oral supplements is that they are able to resist degradation in the gut and efficiently reach target cells delivering maximised absorption through cutting-edge liposomal encapsulation technology. Altrient are delighted to introduce this new, revolutionary form of magnesium for the benefit of the many, not just the few.

Movement Integration - The Systemic Approach to Human Movement

by Martin Lundgren, Linus Johansson

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2020. Paperback. £24.99. $31.28. ISBN: 978 1 905367 95 5

Book Description

Throughout history, there has always been constant development and efforts made to better understand human form and function. The aim of this endeavour has been to find a better and more suitable way to understand and describe human movement. This book is another contribution to this great work and another step in its development.

Cover Movement Integration

The authors, Martin Lundgren and Linus Johansson, together with eight of their colleagues, have created this Movement Integration book. In it they describe the human form and function from a systemic point of view, primarily by using relationships between structures within the body itself.

Two completely new concepts are presented. The first is Ensomatosy, which is a new holistic approach to the human form and parallel perspective to anatomy. The second is the Color Illustration Model of Relative Movement, which is a visual aid to see and understand the complex relationships between movements that happen when a person moves.

The sole purpose of this book is to describe the vast human complexity by means of these two well-organized concepts that can be used to more easily approach and work with the human form and function in movement.

Linus Johansson is a physiotherapist, movement practitioner, and movement integrator. He works with patients in his clinic, presents workshops, and educates other therapists and trainers. Johansson is the author of several books and together with Cecilia Gustafsson has developed the movement concept SOMA MOVE®.

About Martin Lundgren

Martin Lundgren is a Board Certified Structural Integrator (ATSI/KMI) and Movement Practitioner. With roots in Structural Integration and Anatomy in Motion he has been developing new treatment systems and treatment methods in recent years. Through his way of working with treatments and movement, he develops people’s kinesthetic ability, performance, and well-being.

Turning Point Training Offers Postgraduate Courses in Craniosacral Therapy and Homotoxicology

Turning Point students come from a variety of backgrounds both in conventional and holistic disciplines. This allows an exchange of information and experience that enriches the learning experience. Courses are mixture of leading-edge, scientifically based theory and clinical and practical tuition. Students are encouraged to explore and develop their gifts and talents in bringing their unique experience to the disciplines taught. Students are thus empowered.

Jonathan and Rosemary Lawrence + CranioSacral Course

Top: Jonathan Lawrence BA DO Cert Ed and Rosemary Lawrence Dip BFD Cert Clin Hom Cert Ed
Bottom: Craniosacral Course 2019

Turning Point teachers are enthusiastic and experienced practicing therapists who keep their knowledge up to date. Small groups help to facilitate this experience.

The philosophy of Turning Point encompasses the idea that medicine is an art informed by science. We believe that the conventional materialist paradigm is very much out of date and that scientific knowledge has now reached a point where much of holistic medicine can incorporated into a new paradigm. Turning Point courses introduce the concepts of research and encourage students to critically evaluate current information.

  • Craniosacral therapy is based on the relation of the relationship between the structure and function of the body and health. Specific, gentle and skilled manipulation can restore the structure-function relationship supporting the patients’ own homeostatic mechanisms. This non-invasive and safe therapy can be used on patients of all ages from the new-born to the elderly.
    The Level 1 Practitioner Course consists of 7 modules over 8 days including practical tuition. In addition students have to complete a portfolio of cases and complete an exam. Practical skills are assessed during the course. This course is recognised by the CMA.
    Level 2, Advanced CST consists of five modules; Mother/Baby and Reproductive, Visceral, Immune System and Lymphatics; Physical and Emotional Trauma, and Dental, Facial and Cranial Base. Assessment is via Case studies.
    These courses are led By Jonathan Lawrence
  • Homotoxicology is based on the idea that disease results from toxic load. In modern life we are subject to toxins from a variety of sources. This has the effect of stressing the immune system leading to ill health. Accurate prescribing can help the body to gently detoxify aiding the restoration of homeostasis.
    The remedies used are be single potency homeopathic remedies or combinations of remedies to achieve a specific physiological response.
    There is access to online training via the Society of Homotoxicology
    We provide further courses in Electro Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV) for suitably qualified students. This involves electro-acupuncture assessment of meridans and clinical application of findings.
    Training is via small tutorial groups led by Rosemary Lawrence.

Ecclesiastica Celtica

by Sabine Baring-Gould

Published by Imagier Publishing, Crucible Books. 2014. Paperback. £15.  ISBN: 978-0-9573715-1-4

Sabine Baring-Gould presents the reader with an alternative and more compelling history of the Celtic Church in Britain to that commonly offered by the proponents of the belief that Christianity began in these islands either with Patrick in the mid-fifth century or was revived by Augustine at the end of the sixth century.

Ecclesiastica Celtica

Ecclesiastica Celtica describes a nascent Christianity very different in character to the Christianity we know today. He introduces the reader to a religious spirit dedicated to the contemplative life, evolving within a civilised Romano-British society, a society that was to be devastated from the beginning of the fifth century onward by the political turmoil and internecine conflicts of a collapsing Roman Empire. He relates how that ancient British Church and its people adapted and survived, against extraordinary and overwhelming odds. Ecclesiastica Celtica is a marvellous and heroic epic spanning many generations. An epic that every man, woman and child of these islands should know and cherish.

About the Author

Sabine Baring-Gould (1834 – 1924) was one of the most popular writers of his time. Over 1200 publications are listed in his bibliography – more than 300 of them being books. He wrote prolifically on religious matters, his travels, historical figures and folk-lore. He was also a well-known novelist. As an early archaeologist he was respected for his work on Dartmoor, in Cornwall, in Wales and in France. His personal life is a story in itself, with his unconventional childhood, his marriage to a mill-girl half his age, and his dedication to antiquarian pursuits alongside his life as a squire and parson of a Devonshire village.

The MediterrAsian Way

by Ric Watson and Trudie Thelander

Published by Bedford House Press. 2019. Hardcover. £17.91/$28.90. ISBN 0473453819

The Sirtfood Diet, reportedly followed by Grammy-winning singer Adele, has become extraordinarily popular. But the diet has been criticised by nutrition experts for being highly restrictive. In fact, only 1000 calories a day are allowed at the beginning of the diet, which dietitian McKenzie Caldwell recently told Good Housekeeping magazine “is only appropriate for a child between the ages of 2 and 4”.

Cover The Mediterrasian Way

However, the Sirtfood Diet is based on the less restrictive “MediterrAsian” diet, which is a better and much easier-to-follow way to live a healthy life and lose weight. The MediterrAsian diet is a hybrid of Mediterranean and Asian diets and is the basis for the book The MediterrAsian Way by Ric Watson and Trudie Thelander. Traditional Mediterranean and Asian diets are rich in natural plant compounds called polyphenols. Consuming these polyphenol-rich foods –  including extra virgin olive oil, turmeric, capers, green tea and red wine – activates a special family of genes in the body called sirtuins which play a fundamental role in slowing cellular ageing and repairing DNA. Activating sirtuins also helps the body better regulate blood sugar levels, makes cells more resilient to stress, and improves the body’s ability to burn fat for energy.

The scientists found that the sirtuin-activating benefits of a MediterrAsian diet were similar to severe calorie restriction such as fasting, which also activates sirtuins, but without having to restrict calories. Their groundbreaking research was published in the scientific journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity in 2013.

They wrote, “We suggest that a so-called “MediterrAsian” diet combining sirtuin-activating foods (= sirtfoods) of the Asian as well as Mediterranean diet may be a promising dietary strategy in preventing chronic diseases, thereby ensuring health and healthy ageing.”

“But high sirtfood consumption isn’t the only reason people from Mediterranean and Asian cultures traditionally enjoy such exceptional health and long lifespans, points out Thelander. “Unlike modern Western diets that are full of highly processed foods, a MediterrAsian diet is based on a foundation of minimally processed foods like vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, nuts, olive oil, and fish. These foods are overflowing with health-promoting compounds including omega-3 fatty acids, phytochemicals, antioxidants, and also dietary fibre – which is great for gut health and is also one of nature’s best appetite suppressants”.

The Top Sirtuin-Activating Foods:

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Turmeric
  • Red wine
  • Green tea (particularly matcha)
  • Soy foods (such as tofu, miso and edamame)
  • Red onions
  • Capers
  • Walnuts
  • Seaweed
  • Parsley
  • Dark chocolate

North East Student Chosen as Face of The Wonderful Wig Company 2020

17-year-old Marnie Wall of Whitley Bay was selected from over 100 applicants to be the official face of The Wonderful Wig Company. North East start-up, The Wonderful Wig Company, committed to changing how women feel when they experience hair-loss, selected Marnie Wall, aged 17 from Whitley Bay, to be the face of their brand for 2020.

17-Year Old Marnie Wall

Marnie Wall, 17, chosen as the face of The Wonderful Wig Company 2020

After a nationwide call out to find inspirational women experiencing hair loss, which saw hundreds share their “with and without” (wig) photographs on Instagram using the hashtag #hairbossnothairloss, the team at The Wonderful Wig Company selected Marnie for her “undeniable positivity and inspiring confidence”.

Marnie, a creative media production student at Newcastle College, experienced alopecia areata related hair loss in June 2019, just before her 17th birthday. She explained: “when I first started losing my hair, it had a very big impact on my life. I wouldn't even leave the house without a hat or a wig on, I felt embarrassed at the fact I had no hair and I hated myself for a long time. But, as time went on, I learned that just because I have no hair, that does not make me a different person and it doesn't make me any less beautiful as someone with hair; beauty isn't about if you have hair or what you look like, it’s about what’s on the inside, and you as a person.”

Marnie will be the public face of the business throughout the year, appearing in media campaigns, advertising, supporting the team in their outreach work with young women with hair-loss, and winning a prize package worth over £8,000. On discovering she had won the competition, Marnie said: “I was so excited, I even cried for a good hour with happiness.”

On her aims for her year as the face of the company, she added: “as I work with the Wonderful Wig Company throughout the year, I would love to spread as much awareness as I can about all the different types of hair loss. I would also love to help people like me, who are going through hair loss or have been through it, to embrace and see hair loss as an amazing thing which doesn't change you or make you any different to anyone else.”

Nicola Wood, founder and Creative Director of The Wonderful Wig Company said, “I founded The Wonderful Wig Company because eight million women in the UK have hair-loss and my aim is to help people feel fantastic again, hair or no hair! I’ve been overwhelmed with emotion at the amazing, brave and beautiful women who have bared all to share their stories of hair-loss with us during the Face Of competition. It was such an agonising decision, but we’re delighted to be working with Marnie Wall this year – she simply shines and truly owns her image, she is a real hair boss!”

Founded by hairdresser Nicola Wood in 2017, The Wonderful Wig Company offers both wigs and hairstyling combined to help people regain their confidence and self-esteem during hair-loss. In 2019, after just two years of trading, the work done by Nicola and her team in supporting those affected by hair-loss saw them recognised by the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, the North East Business Woman of the Year Awards and the Sunderland Echo Portfolio Awards. The team also received the coveted Gold Status from The Little Princess Trust - joining only 8 other UK salons to have achieved this accolade.

Starting with a salon in Sunderland in 2017, the business opened its second salon in Jesmond in December 2019.

TiMbandAir – 3D Printed Helmet to Correct Flat Head Syndrome in Babies

Technology in Motion, the leading UK clinical specialists in flat head syndrome, have launched TiMbandAir; a truly innovative 3D-printed helmet to correct baby’s head shape.

Flat-Head-Syndrome

Soon after being born, some babies can develop a flattening of the head known as flat head syndrome. If left untreated, this flattening can be permanent throughout the baby’s life into adulthood. With over 15 years of experience in treating the condition, Technology in Motion has utilised revolutionary 3D printing technology to reinvent the way plagiocephaly helmets are designed. The TiMbandAir addresses the limitations of the more traditional helmet style, offering thoughtful improvements due to its unique three shell construction. The perforated structure offers a breathable design to promote ventilation and reduce sweating – a common side effect for babies undergoing treatment.

The TiMbandAir won the highly prestigious Red Dot ‘Best of the Best’ design award in 2018, which recognized the strength, quality and potential global impact of its design. With over six years in development, which included three years of EU partial funding, and over two years of patient trials and improvements, the TiMbandAir is now exclusively available in Technology in Motion clinics nationwide. 

Steve Mottram MBAPO, Managing Director of Technology in Motion, says “We are extremely proud of the TiMbandAir helmet. We have had an amazing response so far, with almost 50% of parents opting for the TiMbandAir since its launch. We understand the distress, uncertainty and confusion parents undergo and we are excited to offer parents an improved form of flat head syndrome treatment for the future.”

Kim, a parent whose daughter is undergoing TiMbandAir treatment, says “The helmet’s increased air flow has ensured our daughter has remained comfortable with very little sweating (even when she is at her most active).  The TiMband Air helmet is extremely lightweight and we could see changes within a week of her starting to wear it. We are delighted with the improvement the TiMband Air helmet has achieved so far and we can't thank Steve and the team enough for the massive difference this will make to our daughter’s future well-being.”

Technology in Motion are recognized as UK leaders in flat head syndrome correction since 2003. They developed the acclaimed TiMbandTM  treatment in 2010, which has been used to successfully treat thousands of babies over the last decade. They have worked with Invent Medical for over ten years and are delighted to be their UK representative partner.
