Hearing Implants for DHH
Hearing Implants are needed for a person who is deaf or is hard of hearing, if the hearing loss is severe or there are other complications. Hearing implants need medical intervention - often surgery. Hence, implants can be put only on the advice and under supervision of trained practitioners. This page covers the basic principle of working for the implants and their types, comparison between aids and implants, and information about major hearing implant brands.

The cochlea is a spiraled, hollow, conical chamber of bone, in which waves propagate from the base (near the middle ear and the oval window) to the apex (the top or center of the spiral). The spiral canal of the cochlea is a section of the bony labyrinth of the inner ear that is approximately 30 mm long and makes 2¾ turns about the modiolus.
