Bone conduction implants work by bypassing the damaged middle and outer ear and sending clearer and more crisp sound directly to the inner ear using bone conduction. The sound vibrations are captured and sent through the skin to the implant located in the skull bone and then onto the inner ear.
For almost 40 years, bone conduction implants have positively affected how people all over the world live their lives. They work by using the body’s natural ability to conduct sound and are designed to provide a more complete and fulfilling listening experience to those suffering from single-sided deafness, conductive or mixed hearing loss.
Do you qualify for a bone conduction solution?
Bone conduction solutions can help people with single-sided deafness, conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. They are proven hearing solutions for Microtia and Atresia and hearing loss due to illness or ear infections.
Will you benefit from a bone conduction solution?
Research and decades of experience demonstrate that a bone conduction solution may help you:
- Hear better, even in noisy situations
- Enjoy a clean, more natural sound because bypassing the damaged part of your ear may reduce the amount of amplification needed to help you hear better
- Hear sounds as if they are coming from both sides
- Become more aware of your surroundings, increasing your ability to hear important sounds
