Bone Anchored Hearing Aids (BAHAs) include a permanent titanium fixture or implant, as opposed to a removable headband. This fixture is subcutaneously inserted into the skull bone behind your ear. This contains the vibrating component. Afterwards, a small detachable sound processor clips onto this fixture. This again bypasses the external auditory canal and middle ear. BAHAs are also available with digital technology.
The good news is, transferring sounds to the inner ear directly doesn’t use as much amplification as conventional hearing aids as it is simply not needed. This means the sound quality from bone-anchored aids feels more natural.
Also due to its external nature, just as with the bone conduction aids; bone-anchored aids don’t contribute to ear infections, ear sores or irritation.
Over 150,000 people worldwide have undergone the safe and simple procedure, which has absolutely no risk of damage to your ear or hearing.
