Research and decades of experience demonstrate that a bone conduction implant system may help your child:1-3
Baha Start is our non-surgical bone conduction solution that features the Baha Softband or SoundArc™ and one or two Baha® 6 Max Sound Processors.
*In the United States and Canada, a Baha Implant System is cleared for children over the age of 5.
** In the United States, the Osia implant is indicated for use in children ages 12 and older. In Canada, the Osia implant is indicated for use in children ages 5 and older.
The Cochlear™ Baha® System, features an external sound processor that captures sound from the air that is then turned into vibrations and sent through the bone. These vibrations are then carried by the bone to the inner ear.
The Baha 6 Max Sound Processor is a small, off-the-ear device that delivers the power output levels of a power device—up to 55 dB SNHL.* This extra power gives your child access to a broad and dynamic range of sounds.
With enhanced durability, the Baha 6 Max features our highest rating of dust and water protection at IP68.** Your child will be sure to enjoy their favorite everyday activities as well as new adventures, the Baha 6 Max Sound Processor will keep up with them.
The Osia System is a brand new hearing implant that uses a powerful Piezo Power™ transducer that expands and contracts to create powerful vibrations to send sound naturally to your inner ear, through bone conduction.
The more power a sound processor has, the greater the opportunity your child has to hear more sounds. Additional power capacity can be critical if your child’s hearing loss declines over time, and that’s why the Osia System is designed to help those with a hearing loss up to 55dB SNHL.*
The Osia 2 Sound Processor can easily become waterproof with the Aqua+ accessory.† The Aqua+ accessory covers the Osia Sound Processor so that your child can enjoy their favorite water activities without sacrificing better hearing.
The Baha® 6 Max and Osia® 2 Sound Processors provide a smart connection to the people and devices your child loves.
Technology that helps personalize your child’s hearing experience.
Our portfolio of bone conduction sound processors all feature our True Wireless technology. Sound and speech can be streamed directly into your child's sound processor from a variety of devices including, TVs, smartphones or classroom FM systems without anything around the neck.
