Abutment-Free Sophono Systems Produce Comparable Study Results to Cochlear’s Baha Products, With Fewer Complications
Date:5/21/2013

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Children using the abutment-free implantable bone conduction hearing device from Sophono, Inc., experience audiological results comparable to the traditionally used, competitive abutment device – and with many fewer complications, according to a new study.

“The results are yet another independent verification that Sophono’s abutment-free technology performs just as well as technology with a percutaneous device – but with many fewer complications,” says Jim Kasic, president and CEO of Sophono.

Sophono is a Colorado-based medical device manufacturer. The Sophono Alpha System™ is the only abutment-free, implantable, bone-anchored hearing system on the market, treating those with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss and single-sided deafness. Fitted to the patient’s head with the use of small, implantable magnets, the Sophono Alpha System eliminates problems associated with other bone conduction hearing systems. These include drilling a hole in the patient’s skull and installing a very noticeable screw that pokes out through the skin on the side of the head.

The article summarizing the study findings appears in the May issue of Otology & Neurotology (“Comparison Between a New Implantable Transcutaneous Bone Conductor and Percutaneous Bone-Conduction Hearing Implant”). The study, conducted in the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center (Nijmegan, The Netherlands) in 2012, evaluated the results of children implanted with the Sophono Alpha 1™ closed skin-device and Cochlear Limited’s Baha® abutment-based device. The children, between the ages of 5 and 12, all suffered from congenital unilateral conductive hearing loss.
