Success of hearing implant devices
Hearing devices can highly improve your quality of life.
Bone anchored implants
This success rate has been reported by scientific studies. The intervention is successful when the implant is stable and osseointegrated in the bone.

About Bone Conduction
Bone conduction is the transmission of sound to the inner ear primarily through vibrations of the skull, allowing the hearer to perceive sound without the use of their ear canal.
Bone Conduction Systems
Bone conduction hearing systems are a treatment option for a specific type of hearing loss in which sound is blocked from travelling along the typical hearing pathway towards the inner ear. Instead, sound is transmitted to the inner ear by vibration of the skull.
About Cochlear Implant Systems
A cochlear implant is a hearing device that converts sounds into an electrical signal that is sent via the hearing nerve to the brain.
Cochlear Implant Systems
A cochlear implant system consists of two part: the implant (internal part) and the sound processor (external part). The sound processor is capturing sounds of the environment and sends that information to the internal part across the skin.The internal part is surgically implanted underneath the skin behind the ear. A part of the implant, called the electrode array, is inserted inside the cochlea and is sending electrical signal to the auditory nerve.
