Question

How does the Cochlear™ Osia® System utilize the Human Design™ concept?

Answer

Powered by piezoelectric stimulation, the Osia® System is a first-of-its-kind hearing implant system for people with single-sided deafness (SSD), conductive or mixed hearing loss, to bypass damaged areas of the natural hearing system and send sound directly to the cochlea.

Cochlear Osia System

Blending hearing technology with human capacity, the Osia System uses innovative technologies specifically chosen and designed to work in and with the body, an approach called the Human Design™ concept.  With no movement between parts, the technology is well-suited to deliver long-term performance and durability.1-2 The goal of the Osia System is to help people live their lives without getting in the way, while providing the performance needed to hear in noisy situations where they may struggle most.3

The slim, only 10.4 mm, off-the-ear sound processor is light and comfortable to wear. As an all-in-one magnet retained unit, patients can simply place it, adjust their hair and be ready to go. The ear/ear canal are left open and free to reduce the risk for recurring infections and irritation.4 Further, advanced signal processing helps allow users to hear what they want to hear.

For more information about the Osia System please watch this webinar series or visit our Cochlear ProNews.

Functional auditory assessment and continuing assessment is critical in order to determine the current level of function, develop appropriate goals for intervention, and achieve maximum outcomes. Learning to listen drives everything else: speech intelligibility, language competence, reading, academics, and life-long learning. This course offers a detailed look at functional auditory assessment and intervention, to provide audiologists with a better understanding of hearing loss in children in terms of the broader speech, language, learning and academic contexts. Additional videos to demonstrate key points will be included.
