The Brånemark principle
The use of the Brånemark principle in medicine and dentistry is the result of decades of research and evaluation. The tendency of titanium implants to merge with human bone, a process known as osseointegration, was first discovered by Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark in the 1950s. Since then, this principle has been applied across various medical fields — including in dental implants, which have used the Brånemark principle since the 1960s.
A 30-year track record within hearing care
A bone anchored hearing system involves placing a titanium implant in the skull bone behind the ear to form an anchor for a sound processor. The system is designed to bypass any problems in the outer or middle ear by using the body’s natural ability to transmit sound directly to the inner ear through bone conduction. This form of treatment has been successfully applied and evaluated for over 30 years, resulting in an improved quality of life for many people.
