New implant replaces impaired middle ear

Chalmer’s University of Technology has invented a new implant to replace the middle ear. It treats mechanical hearing loss (from inflammation, bone disease or infection) in the outer or middle ear.

It may also help people with inner ear hearing loss.

It works using bone conduction, unlike the cochlear implant which is an electronic device that stimulates the auditory nerve directly
