We are delighted to announce that the charity have been awarded a grant of £13,000 from the DM Thomas Foundation to enable us to purchase a Combined Two-Pin Skull Clamp and Actuated Headrest for the paediatric neurosurgery team at St. George’s Hospital. It is a state-of-the-art system which is safe for children under 5 years old and reduces potential complications such as skin necrosis and pressure sores.
The Headrest will provide cranial support for infants and young children when they are lying on their front or back. It also allows adjustments and thus flexibility in patient positioning. It has an adjustable pad base which will accommodate various head sizes.
