Common Hearing Devices
Available from all major manufacturers.
BAHA (bone anchored hearing device): For certain hearing disorders a hearing aid that conducts sound to the inner ear by bone vibration may be needed. The bone anchored hearing aid is a device that attaches to a surgically implanted abutment behind the ear.
Lyric extended wear hearing device from InSound Medical: If this device is appropriate, it is placed by an audiologist and worn at all times until the device stops functioning, at which time it is removed and a completely new device is placed deeply in the ear canal for invisible, natural, and worry free hearing.
Assistive Listening Devices (ALD): Assistive listening devices allow for people with hearing loss to be able to improve hearing the telephone, television, lectures/sermons, doorbells and other alarms. One example is the T.V. Ears device which includes a special set of headphones that wirelessly receive audio from the television and amplifies the audio so that it can be heard without disturbing others. Another example is a pocket-talker device which transmits sound from sermons or lectures to the listener wearing a special set of headphones.
