Bone conduction implant system
BONEBRIDGE is the first active, intact skin hearing implant in bone conduction stimulation. For decades semi-implantable, transcutaneous implants, such as cochlear implants and middle ear implants, have proven successful and stable and have shown to go together with low complication rates. Now for the first time this technology is available for bone conduction stimulation.
Direct bone conduction stimulation
The BONEBRIDGE implant stimulates the bone directly, which allows users to enjoy a superior hearing experience. BONEBRIDGE is the first active hearing implant where no surgical access to the middle ear is necessary. Direct drive bone conduction together with state-of-the-art signal processing provides excellent speech and sound perception.
Transcutaneous implant system
Based on MED-EL's rich experience in transcutaneous technologies, the active BONEBRIDGE bone conduction system is the ideal solution for people who have not benefited from using hearing aids or have suffered from constant skin complications with other hearing aids. The Bone Conductive Floating Mass Transducer (BC-FMT) is a vibrator that is implanted into the mastoid bone of the skull so that no access to the middle ear is necessary, which helps the medical staff to perform a relatively easy and effective surgical intervention.
