Bone Conduction Implant

Combining great sound quality with an incredibly comfortable design, BONEBRIDGE uses advanced bone conduction technology to bring sound into your world.

BONEBRIDGE is a high-performance hearing implant that is both easy to use and easy to wear. Using bone conduction to bring sound straight to your inner ear, BONEBRIDGE ensures natural sound quality so that you never miss a moment.

BONEBRIDGE is also the only active bone conduction implant that is placed fully under the skin—in fact, you won’t even realise it’s there! The externally-worn SAMBA Audio Processor sits comfortably on your head and its streamlined design makes it easy to hide under your hair.

“Today, I still can’t believe what a difference this small device can make!"

"It felt so natural, like I had been wearing it for years."


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.

The Next Steps

What can you expect next? Here’s an outline of the process of receiving a bone conduction implant.



First, you’ll undergo routine assessments to ensure you’re a candidate for a bone conduction implant, and if there are any additional factors your implant team should consider. Your clinical team will walk you and your family through the specifics of what to expect in the following steps.



To implant BONEBRIDGE, the surgical procedure is straightforward and usually lasts between 1–2 hours under general anesthesia. Recipients are usually back on their feet the next day. Your hospital stay may last one or more days, depending on your individual needs and what’s typical in your area.



A few weeks after implantation, you’ll have your first fitting. This “activation day” is when your audiologist will turn on your audio processor for the first time and you’ll hear your first new sounds. The audio settings of your processor will be adjusted to fit your hearing preferences.

*Wireless connectivity feature is available with the Siemens miniTek. Sivantos is not responsible for the operation with the SAMBA or its compliance with safety and regulatory standards in operation with the SAMBA.
