The above conditions may occur in isolation, resulting in a conductive hearing loss, or along with a cochlear hearing loss component, resulting in a mixed hearing loss.
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 benefits for adults and children of all ages.

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.

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.
