Could you benefit from a bone conduction implant?
If you are deaf in one ear or you have conductive or mixed hearing loss, the Baha System may be a solution for you.
Ask yourself the following questions, if you answer "yes" to any of them, the Baha 5 Bone Conduction Implant System may be right for you.
- Can you only hear from one side?
- Do you suffer from sore or irritated ears due to your hearing aids?
- Do you have trouble getting sufficient loudness when using your hearing aids?
- Do you have draining ears?
- Do you have malformed ears or ear canals?
- Do you battle feedback or distorted sound quality when using hearing aids?
The brilliance of bone conduction.
There are two ways we hear sound-- through air conduction and through bone conduction. They both work together to help us listen to and perceive sound. However, when we hear ourselves speak, it is actually the enhancement of lower frequencies by vibrations in the bone that helps us perceive our ‘normal’ tone of voice.
Bone conduction implants, like the Cochlear™ Baha® System, work on the exact same principle, only on a much more sophisticated scale.
While a hearing aid tries to push sound through the damaged part of the ear, the Baha System uses your natural ability to conduct sound through bone vibrations. Through bone conduction, sound bypasses the damaged outer or middle ear and sends clearer, more crisp sound directly to your inner ear.
