The Baha® System
1. A sound processor picks up sound vibrations.
2. An abutment is attached to the sound processor and the implant. The abutment transfers the sound vibrations from the processor to the implant.
3. A small titanium implant is placed in the bone behind the ear where it fuses with the living bone. This process is called osseointegration. The implant transfers the sound vibrations to the functioning cochlea.
Direct Bone Conduction with Baha®
What does the sound processor look like?
The Baha Sound Processor snaps on to the abutment. The processor is small, discreet and is available in a variety of colors. The volume controls are conveniently located for easy adjustments.
