Middle Ear Implants
Implanted since 1996, the VIBRANT SOUNDBRIDGE middle ear implant system from MED-EL is the most successful middle ear implant on the market today. The SOUNDBRIDGE has been helping thousands of people around the world to improve their hearing for near to 20 years. The system features the new SAMBA audio processor.
Who Can Benefit from a Middle Ear Implant?
A middle ear implant like the SOUNDBRIDGE is an alternative to conventional hearing devices. It is designed for individuals who cannot use hearing aids or who ar not satisfied with them and do not achieve sufficient benefit with other hearing devices. The SOUNDBRIDGE has been approved for patients who have been diagnosed with moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss or conductive or mixed hearing loss*.
The SOUNDBRIDGE is the only middle ear implant that is attached only to the structure of the middle ear which it is stimulating. This makes the SOUNDBRIDGE independent of skull growth and therefore suitable for implantation in children at the age of 10 or older.
