For hearing loss in children and adults

If you find that conventional hearing aids don’t give you the hearing you need, a bone conduction system like Ponto may be the right solution. With Ponto, sounds are converted into vibrations that are sent through the skull bone directly to the inner ear. This method of hearing has benefited adults and children of all ages.

Are you deaf in one ear?

Being deaf on one side, also called single-sided deafness, reduces not only your ability to locate sounds but also your ability to follow conversations in noisy environments. Many people who suffer from single-sided deafness find that a bone anchored hearing system like Ponto helps open up the world of sound around them.

For infections, irritation and draining ears

Sometimes hearing loss may be caused by chronic ear infections. Conventional hearing aids can aggravate this, as they physically block the ear canal and therefore increase the risk of irritation and reinfection. With the Ponto bone anchored hearing system, the ear canal is always left open, which helps to keep it dry and healthy.
