Hearing with a bone conduction implant system.
The brilliance of bone conduction.
There are two ways we hear sound-- through air conduction and through bone conduction. They both work together to help us listen to and perceive sound. However, when we hear ourselves speak, it is actually the enhancement of lower frequencies by vibrations in the bone that helps us perceive our 'normal' tone of voice.
Bone conduction implants, like the Cochlear™ Baha® System, work on the exact same principle, only on a much more sophisticated scale. One of the first steps in understanding the benefits of bone conduction is to understand how natural hearing works and the types of hearing loss.
