Bone conduction solutions

If you or your child have conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or are deaf in one ear, also known as single-sided deafness, a bone conduction solution may help you or your child hear.


Bone conduction solutions use your body's natural ability to deliver sound vibrations through the bones in your skull directly to your functional inner ear, so you can experience your surroundings and enjoy your daily activities.

Our latest bone conduction solution, the Cochlear™ Osia® System, is an active osseointegrated steady-state implant that uses piezoelectric stimulation to send sound to your inner ear.

The Cochlear Baha® System uses advanced technologies to transmit sound to your inner ear. There are different sound processor models to choose from, each designed to treat a different level of hearing loss.

“The Osia System has changed my life to such a degree that I find it difficult to imagine what life would be like without it.”

— Chris, Cochlear™ Osia® System recipient
