How does the Baha work?

BAHA.h5

My BAHA is  on the deaf side (Left), it will pick up the sound and transmit it through the bone of the skull (bone conduction) to the inner ear on the hearing side.(right)

The normal ear hears sound through air conduction (sound traveling through the air in the ear canal and vibrating the ear drum).

One-sided deafness patients with a BAHA device can hear people sitting on their deaf side without the need to turn their head for listening. Yah!

Pretty Cool!
