Non-surgical bone conduction solutions
A bone conduction solution can be fitted for infants and children who are not old enough* or may not be ready for an implantable bone conduction solution. If your child has conductive or mixed hearing loss, or is completely deaf in one ear, they can still gain early access to critical sound that is necessary to develop speech and meet developmental milestones through a non-surgical bone conduction solution.1
How non-surgical bone conduction solutions work
Our non-surgical bone conduction solution - Baha® Start - uses the brilliance of bone conduction to send sound to the healthy inner ear through vibrations of the bones in the head. One or two Baha® Sound Processors can be connected to a Baha® Softband or SoundArc™.
Together, these parts bypass the blocked part of the ear, sending vibrations directly through the bone to the inner ear.
Can a bone conduction solution help you or your child?
If you are considering an implantable bone conduction solution, you’ll be able to try hearing through bone conduction with Baha Start. When you decide to move on with a hearing implant, you and your hearing health professional will discuss what solution is right for you or your child.
