To the aid of those suffering from mixed or conductive hearing loss as well as single sided deafness – Single Sided Deafness (SSD) comes the new Baha system. This brand new hearing prosthetic aid differs from the others currently on the market because, instead of using sound amplification through normal air conduction, it directly stimulates the cochlea using bone conduction , thus avoiding the problems deriving from a damaged or occluded external and middle ear . The device consists of two parts: a sound processor that picks up vibrations and a titanium implant inserted into the skull behind the ear, which transfers these vibrations directly to the functioning cochlea. The device has obtained CE certification and FDA approval. [photo cochlearamericas ]
