Passive middle ear implants
Our passive middle ear implants in a nutshell: Efficient at transmitting sound—and easy to handle
As a company completely dedicated to otology and overcoming hearing loss, MED-EL always goes one step further.
We have always been driven by one thing: а passion to help people with hearing loss.
That is why we have put all our experience from the fields of ear surgery and hearing rehabilitation into the development of our passive implants. And that is why we are the only company to offer a complete portfolio of implantable hearing solutions.
Passive middle ear implants are the latest addition to our range of products.
Our implants are available in various designs, lengths and diameters. This way, they not only fit the individual anatomy of each patient, but also fit every surgical needs in terms of the type of coupling and design.
In perfect balance
The weight distribution of our implants is very balanced. This makes our prostheses inherently stable, and simplifies general handling and intraoperative placement.
All our tympanoplasty implants have generous recesses in the head plate, through which you can always see the coupling point. We also made intraoperative visibility a priority in our stapesplasty implants: Their slim design allows a full view of the foot plate and the long process of the incus.
So delicate, so strong
That might sound like a contradiction but it is not. Our prostheses are both low weight and extremely stiff. That is the perfect combination to optimally conduct sound to the oval window and into the inner ear.
To adapt all our implants to the patient's anatomy during surgery, you can bend the shaft of the implant. And with our tympanoplasty implants, you can even bend the head plate. There's no need for special equipment.
Our implants are made out of titanium, and are therefore both highly biocompatible and MRI-conditional up to 7.0 Tesla. That means your patients are ready for the future.
