How Does BONEBRIDGE Work?
With normal hearing, sound vibrations are sent through the outer and middle parts of the ear, and on to the inner ear. If you have conductive or mixed hearing loss, your outer or middle ear is damaged, and so sounds can't reach your inner ear effectively. BONEBRIDGE bypasses your damaged outer and middle ears altogether, and sends sound vibrations to your inner ear through the bones of your skull. This allows you to enjoy great hearing, despite your hearing loss.
If you have single-sided deafness, BONEBRIDGE can also be used to send sound vibrations from your non-hearing side over to your “good side”. This gives you the freedom to join the conversation, wherever you’re sitting at the table.
The BONEBRIDGE System consists of two parts. The externally worn audio processor picks up the sounds around you and sends them to the internal implant, which is placed just under the skin behind the ear.
