The ADHEAR system by MED-EL is the only non-implantable bone conduction system. It exerts no pressure onto the skin and is comfortable to wear all day long. It is made of two parts: an adhesive adapter and an audio processor. It sticks behind the ear and is easy to switch on with just one click. The ADHEAR is also a possible solution for toddlers waiting for an implantation with a bone conduction implant and for patients suffering from temporary bone conduction hearing loss which might, for example, be related to frequent middle-ear infections.
As these systems are non-implantable, it is possible to put on the device and start hearing immediately. This means you can also try it out first and see if you can hear well with it before you make a decision.
