Sound …. with a bite!

25 03 2011

The SoundBite is a bone conduction hearing aid which was approved by the FDA in January and is now approved in Europe. Each aid is custom made for the patient. It transmits sound to the cochlea through the jawbone and teeth, across a frequency range of 250 to more than 12,000 Hz. The ITM (In-The-Mouth) picks up sound wirelessly from a small BTE part. It runs on rechargeable batteries. So yes, you’ll be wearing something on the ear and in the mouth, but hey, it’s this or surgery for a BAHA.
