Baha works on a principle of efficient coupling of the sound processor to the underlying bone through 1) a small connector across the skin, and 2) an implant that directly bonds with the underlying bone – an osseointegrated implant
Baha is a technology that combines a sound processor with a small titanium fixture implanted behind the ear. This unique system allows the bone to transfer sound to a functioning cochlea rather than via the middle ear – a process known as direct bone conduction.
Only your doctor, together with your audiologist, can determine if you are a good candidate for Baha. You will have an opportunity to try the Baha processor connected to a headband during your appointment. This will provide some sense of what sound would be delivered through bone conduction
