Middle Ear Implant
How does a middle ear implant work?
Rather than simply amplifying sound like a hearing aid, a middle ear implant converts sound into mechanical vibrations that directly stimulate your middle ear.
The middle ear implant consists of two main components, just like the cochlear implant: the surgical implant, which is placed underneath the skin, and the externally worn audio processor. It is held over the implant by a magnet and can be discreetly worn under hair.
