BONEBRIDGE- MEDEL Introduces World’s First Active Bone Conduction Implant

BONEBRIDGE is a high-performance hearing implant that is both easy to use and easy to wear. Using bone conduction to bring sound straight to your inner ear, BONEBRIDGE ensures natural sound quality so that you never miss a moment.

BONEBRIDGE is an active bone conduction implant that is placed fully under the skin. The implant can undergo MRI scans of up to 1.5 Tesla.

The externally-worn SAMBA Audio Processor sits comfortably on your head and its streamlined design makes it easy to hide under your hair. The SAMBA Audio Processor is held comfortably in place by magnets. You can also choose to make your processor stand out from the crowd with the stylish SAMBA Design Covers.

How Does BONEBRIDGE Work?

With normal hearing, sound vibrations are sent through the outer and middle parts of the ear, and on to the inner ear. If you have conductive or mixed hearing loss, your outer or middle ear is damaged, and so sounds can't reach your inner ear effectively. BONEBRIDGE bypasses your damaged outer and middle ears altogether, and sends sound vibrations to your inner ear through the bones of your skull. This allows you to enjoy great hearing, despite your hearing loss.

If you have single-sided deafness, BONEBRIDGE can also be used to send sound vibrations from your non-hearing side over to your “good side”. This gives you the freedom to join the conversation, wherever you’re sitting at the table.

The BONEBRIDGE System consists of two parts. The externally worn audio processor picks up the sounds around you and sends them to the internal implant, which is placed just under the skin behind the ear.
