- BAHA - Bone Anchored Hearing Aid
- CROS Hearing Aid - Stands for Contralateral Routing Of Signals.
However, nothing is all good...
The disadvantage with the SoundBite is battery life. The ear piece battery only lasts about 12-15 hours and the teeth retainer piece about 8 hours. Also, the teeth retainer needs to be fitted by a dentist.
Also, not everybody is a candidate for SoundBite. In order to quality, a patient must have:
1) Good teeth and gums
2) Deaf in only one side with normal hearing on the other. A comprehensive hearing test is required obviously.
