Cochlear implants are a surgically implanted device that can provide sound to someone with a severe or profound hearing loss. The technology stimulates the auditory nerve which the brain can interpret into sound over time.
Amplifon do not provide cochlear implants. We do have access to bone anchored hearing aids (BAHA) which are usually used to treat conductive hearing losses, or cases of single sided deafness. We fit a non-surgical BAHA device by MED-EL
BAHA or Bone anchored hearing aid uses bone conduction to deliver hearing to those with loss, we provide a non-surgical solution at Amplifon which can be applied to children with adult consent.
The BAHA pushes sound through bone conduction to stimulate sound for the user.
The BAHA is a great non-surgical alternative to cochlear, can be applied simply in clinic and easy to manage for children with hearing loss.
A cochlear implant is a neuroprosthetic device which can provide a hearing solution for those with severe to profound hearing loss.
The cochlear implant stimulates the auditory nerve which the brain can adapt and interpret sound.
The cochlear implant is a surgical solution to those with profound or severe hearing loss.
Cochlear implants can be provided to children which can aid in their formative years to learn and develop.
