The Ponto System overview
Since its launch in 2009, the Ponto System has been opening the magical world of sound for people with hearing loss. If you suffer conductive or mixed hearing loss caused by e.g. microtia or atresia, the Ponto System can help you enjoy greater speech understanding and more comfortable listening in even the most challenging situations.
A complete solution for lifelong patient outcomes
Using the most efficient method of sound transmission through a direct connection to the bone, also known as Direct Sound Transmission, the Ponto™ bone anchored hearing system gives you powerful hearing performance. Fitting the implant requires only minor surgery and once you connect the sound processor after the surgery*, the resulting premium sound quality will change the way you experience the world around you.
The Ponto System can be used for single-sided deafness or fitted bilaterally on both ears. It consists of three parts:
- A small 3-4 mm titanium implant that sits in the bone behind the ear
The abutment where the sound processor is attached
The Ponto sound processor
Proven stability for superior sound
Bone anchored hearing systems have a successful history based on the principle of osseointegration. This is also widely used in other fields, including dentistry, orthopedics, craniofacial and hearing care.
The sound processor provides superior sound quality while the new Ponto BHX Implant ensures the highest level of stability from day one. It’s also possible to use your sound processor with cell phones, TVs and other devices with the Oticon Medical Streamer.
Oticon Medical supplies a full range of abutments, surgical instruments and fitting software to support bone anchored hearing surgery.
