You're informed and
the parent is involved
As a healthcare professional, you need a starting point to diagnose and track development. This way, you are informed and the patient is involved and motivated. This makes measuring essential.
Unfortunately, current measurement methods are
time consuming or inaccurate.
That is why we have founded Skully Care:
an accurate and accessible measuring method
for plagio- and brachycephaly.
This is Skully Care
A measurement method that motivates the parents.
The validity has been investigated by the University Medical Center Utrecht. The reliability has been tested by Hogeschool Utrecht.
Results within 5 minutes
A measurement with the Skully Care app takes an average of 5 minutes. In this time, you take the photo and you receive the result.
Free for parents
Motivate and inform parents by sharing progress and interactive exercises.
Approximately 15% of babies develop a skull deformity in the first year of life*. This is about 102,000 babies annually, in the UK alone.

How does Skully Care work?
Step 1: measure
One photo of the little one is enough. The only thing you have to pay attention to is that both ears and the nose are on it. Then we take over for you!
The photo is sent to a secured server where the values are calculated using the CVAI and CI method.
Step 2: the result
You receive the measurement result in the app and it is automatically displayed in a graph. This gives you and the parent insight into the progress. You can also export the measurement report to the patient file.
