BONEBRIDGE

BONEBRIDGE

The BONEBRIDGE, the world’s first active bone conduction implant system, can be an effective solution for individuals with lasting hearing loss following a middle ear operation, malformations, or generally for conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. It is also an option for individuals with single-sided deafness.  With conductive or mixed hearing loss, sound cannot take the natural path through the outer and middle ear to the inner ear. With the BONEBRIDGE, the sound waves are transmitted via bone conduction directly to the inner ear, where they are processed as natural sound. The BONEBRIDGE ensures optimal daily hearing performance while remaining discreet and unobtrusive.

USAIS can offer the BONEBRIDGE as an option for people aged five years or older when the skull bone is thick enough.
