Standard hearing aid devices work by amplifying sound, but it is only useful for people with the partial hearing loss not for people who are deaf or have profoundly impaired hearing. Hearing loss is associated with the damage or other abnormalities in the tiny censor hair cells present inside the cochlea or inner ear. To overcome such conditions bionic ears are used. A bionic ear is an electronic device designed to produce hearing sensation by electrically stimulating nerves in the inner ear of deaf patients. It consists of a receiver stimulator implanted below the patient’s skin behind the ear and a sound processor. These processors stimulate the inner ear’s nerves which send signals to the brain where these signal are interpreted as sound. Bionic ear is beneficial for people who are suffering from severe, profound or total hearing loss.
Bionic Ears Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising incidence of hearing disorders among the geriatric population is one of the driving factors for the bionic ears market. Hearing disabilities among new born is a matter of concern.
