With the sleek new Cochlear™ Baha® SoundArc and small and powerful Baha 5 Sound Processors that are now available, it’s hard to imagine that the Baha System recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
In the 1970s in Gothenburg, researchers began investigating bone conduction as a way to reconnect people with disabling hearing loss to the sounds of the world. This set in motion a chain of events that led to Mona Andersson receiving a bone conduction implant in 1977.
Now, 40 years later, Cochlear is celebrating those who went against the grain in the name of science, those who trusted them, those who took the legacy further, and those who can now choose a life surrounded by the sounds they love to hear.
Cochlear still leads the world in bone conduction hearing implants, with a range that caters for people with different precise needs. Most recently, the launch of the Baha SoundArc means it is now possible for more people to immediately experience hearing with a Baha System before having surgery.
SoundArc is a modern, lightweight band that secures the Baha 5 Sound Processor comfortably in the correct position against the head. It’s adjustable to fit all head sizes and offers the benefits of bone conduction hearing for those who need or wish to delay a surgical solution. Read more about SoundArc.
