The Cochlear™ Baha® Attract System is a highly effective bone conduction hearing system designed to leave the skin intact. It uses a magnetic connection to attract the sound processor to the implant, sending sound to the inner ear without anything breaking the skin.
If you have conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness then the Baha Attract System may be a good option to help you hear better. The Baha Attract System is a comfortable and easy to use hearing system that requires no daily skin care. The sound processor is easy to handle, and simply snaps onto a sound processor magnet to hold it in place. For added comfort and performance, the sound processor magnet features a unique Baha SoftWear™ Pad that gently adapts to the skin to improve wearing comfort. The system is based on a reliable Baha Implant with unique TiOblast™ surface technology that is proven in a long-term study to be our most stable implant ever.1 The superior stability of the implant means you may get access to sound sooner than ever before. Depending on the recommendation of your healthcare professional, this could be as early as four weeks after surgery.
How the system works
A small titanium implant sits in the bone behind your ear. Attached to the implant is an implant magnet that is hidden beneath the skin.
The sound processor fits onto the sound processor magnet which attracts to the internal magnet to hold it in place. Sound travels as vibrations from the processor via the magnets to the implant, which then directs the vibrations through the bone to stimulate the inner ear.
