Sensor-actuator component for a Floating Mass Transducer-based fully implantable hearing aid

ERCD researchers have successfully combined the actuator component of the Vibrant Soundbridge™ with a new piezoelectric sensor. The result, a fully implantable hearing aid, provides a stable functional gain of up to 40 dB SPL on average for mid- to high frequencies, and offers several advantages over other implantable microphone approaches, such as low noise, natural hearing, and easy one-point fixation.

Static and Dynamic Forces in the Incudostapedial Joint Gap

The paper presents the first measurements of quasi-static and dynamic force as a physiological parameter inside the ossicular chain. The results could help to improve the comprehension of middle ear biomechanics and support the development of future passive prosthesis and active implants.
