Everyone has a different story. Perhaps you woke up one morning and found that you couldn't hear on one side. Maybe you went through childhood struggling to hear even though you tried hearing aid after hearing aid. Or, you simply learned to cope with your hearing loss, rather than doing everything you really wanted.
Can you relate to one of these stories? If so, then you're not alone. These are real stories from people who today benefit from a Baha® bone conduction system from Cochlear and are now experiencing a whole new world of sound.
By using your body's unique ability to conduct sound, the Baha System has the potential to give you a more complete and fulfilling listening experience. And, the results may be life changing.
How do you know if your hearing loss can be treated with the Baha System?
Every hearing loss story is different, and the causes vary widely from person to person. For example, your hearing loss may affect one ear or two; and it may stem from a problem in the inner, middle or outer ear, or from a combination of places.
However, there is one thing that remains constant for anyone who may qualify for the Baha System. Your hearing loss must fall into one of three categories-single-sided deafness, conductive hearing loss or mixed hearing loss.
You have little or no hearing in one ear, but normal hearing in the other ear
You have a problem with your outer or middle ear
