In 2007 Electronic Engineer David Verde and his wife, Molecular Biologist Yin Chen Law of Spain, noticed their 3 month old baby had an abnormal head shape. When their son was 5 months old their baby's flat head worsened. They eventually went through the agonizing & very expensive process of getting their son an orthopaedic helmet. The initial casting of the helmet was very upsetting for their son and after two months of treatment their son had dermatitis, redness and broken skin. There had to be a better way. It was at that moment that the idea for the Mimos Pillow was born!
Now a Class 1 Medical Device in Canada, our mission at Mimos Pillow Canada is to lower the astounding 47% of babies that develop cranial deformities (flat-head syndrome). The Mimos Pillow is the only medical baby pillow recommended by health professionals around the world and is the SAFEST infant pillow on the market. The Mimos Pillow has undergone clinical trials for effectiveness and is international laboratory tested for breathability, anti-suffocation and the risk of CO2 rebreathing.
The Mimos Pillow helps to both prevent and correct positional skull deformities. We recommend all babies use one from the newborn stage on to help avoid flat spots altogether. Babies often need to pair the use of the Mimos Pillow with treatment from health professionals to fix any underlying issues such as torticollis and we work with many paediatric osteopaths, physiotherapists and chiropractors who refer their patients to use a Mimos Pillow.
The Mimos Pillow is recommended by paediatricians and neurosurgeons plus many other healthcare professionals and is available in 25 countries around the world.
