This was done for a helmet that Nadia will be wearing until she is one year old. The helmet will work like a Jell-o mold, meaning that Nadia's head will grow into the shape of the helmet. The helmet does not squeeze her head into shape. Nadia will wear the helmet for at least twenty-three hours a day. The scan was done using a laser gun that looked a lot like a grocery scanner.
Do not worry about the large bumps you see on these images. Those are not actually part of her head. They are from a sensor that was attached to her when she was scanned.
The desired ratio of width/length is around .8, Nadia's head is currently 1. (80% vs. 100%) The doctor was very clear in saying that this is not a certain solution.
