Using your bone’s ability to transfer sound, a bone anchored device has an external processor that will pick up sounds in the air and convert them into vibrations.
These vibrations travel through the bone to the cochlea where the sound is received and relayed to your brain’s auditory centers for processing. The external processor can be attached using a surgically implanted magnet or post. An elastic head band can be used as a non-surgical option.
You may be a candidate for a bone conduction hearing device if:
- You have a medical condition that affects the outer or middle ear, making the use of conventional hearing aids impossible
- You have single sided deafness
