Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) Hearing Aids

RIC hearing aids are discreet devices behind the ear with a slim wire attached to a speaker in the ear canal. This allows for an “open fit” for more natural sound quality. However, a “closed fit” dome or earmold for severe hearing losses can be accommodated.

Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

Sit comfortably behind your ear while amplified sound passes down a tube to a customized earmold that fits securely into your ear. Because they are larger, BTEs can accommodate bigger batteries for longer life and larger amplifiers for maximum amplification. BTEs are suitable for mild to profound hearing losses.

In-the-Ear (ITE)

Custom-made to fit securely in your outer ear, ensuring optimum performance and maximum comfort. ITEs are suitable for mild to severe hearing losses.

In-the-Canal (ITC)

Custom-made to fit almost entirely inside your ear canal, making them difficult to notice. ITCs are suitable for mild to moderately-severe hearing loss.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)

Fit deep inside your ear canal so that they’re practically invisible. Benefits include cosmetic appeal, reduced feedback and excellent sound quality. CICs are suitable for mild to moderately-severe hearing losses.

CROS / BiCROS Hearing System

This hearing system is designed for patients with unaidable hearing in one ear. The CROS system wirelessly transmits a signal from the unaidable ear to the better ear. The BiCROS system works similarly, however, also amplifies sound in the better ear if a hearing loss is present

Hearing Accessories and Assistive Listening Devices (ALD)

Accessories and Assistive Listening Devices can be used with hearing aids to help you hear better in background noise or if you have poor speech understanding. Accessories and ALDs offer better Signal-to-Noise-Ratio (SNR) in complex listening environments.

Bone Conduction Implants

Devices directly couple to your skull through a titanium abutment. Sound is conducted directly to the hearing organ through vibration. Percutaneous conduction is the most commonly used Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA)

Transcutaneous devices have no permanent skin penetration and use an inductive loop system to transmit sound to an internally (beneath the skin) implanted device

A Cochlear Implant is a neuroprosthesis for patients who cannot use traditional amplification devices such as hearing aids or Bone Conduction Devices (BCD). An electrode is surgically implanted into the cochlea to stimulate the auditory nerve
