An osseo-integrated device is a prosthetic device for the ear that allows patients with certain types of hearing loss to experience hearing. These systems are sometimes referred to as “BAHAs” or bone-anchored hearing aids.
Who should consider an auditory prosthetic device?
- Patients with single-sided deafness.
- Patients with conductive, mixed, or sensorineural hearing loss.
- Patients who are unable to use conventional air conduction hearing aids.
What are the options for BAHAs?
Non-surgical prosthetic devices:
Removable devices that utilize a non-invasive approach, such as a headband or medical grade adhesive, to hold the processor at the ear to transmit sound.
Surgical prosthetic devices:
Prosthetics that are surgically implanted into the bone of the skull behind the ear and use an attached sound processor via a titanium abutment or magnetic coupling.
