The vibrant soundbridge is a middle ear implant system. It directly stimulates middle ear structures in much the same way as normal sound moves them via the ear canal. This "direct drive" stimulation enables excellent sound quality without blocking the ear canal.
The Vibrant Soundbridge consists of an external and an internal part. The external part is an audio processor and is worn on the head, can be discretely covered by hair. This internal part is an implant which mechanically vibrates middle ear structures. These vibrations can be amplified and adjusted to optimally compensate for different types and degrees of hearing loss.
In contrast to a traditional hearing aid, which works by amplifying sound, the Vibrant Soundbridge directly stimulates the ossicular chain providing the most efficient transfer of sound called "direct drive". The many clinical results for the Vibrant Soundbridge conducted at numerous clinics and universities worldwide have repeatedly demonstrated that the Vibrant Soundbridge performs better than hearing aids in many environments. Patients implanted with the Vibrant Soundbridge receive the following benefits:
