Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA)

From ATWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) is a hearing aid that is implanted behind the ear, on the skull. The hearing aid works by transferring the vibrations caused by sound from one ear to the other through the skull. This allows the sound to by-pass the middle ear. Thus sound can be transferred from an injured ear to a non-injured ear.[1]
