The story touches on how it all started 37 years ago, and how the bone conduction hearing solution continues to revolutionise the industry today:

The biggest advantage with the Baha Attract System is that you don’t have anything penetrating the skin. Instead of snapping the sound processor on to an abutment, it’s attached using magnets. This is both cosmetically appealing, reduces the need for daily care and minimises risk for infection.

With the new Baha 4 Systems, Cochlear also introduced a wireless sound processor with accessories like the Mini Microphone and Remote Control.

In the building there is a department focusing on clinical research, with a high-tech hearing lab.

“We conduct studies all the way from the first idea through to the final regulatory approval. And our responsibility doesn’t end there – clinical market studies are also very important,” says Clinical Research Manager Stina Wigren. “We also encourage independent scientists to conduct research on our products. There has been a large increase in the research on bone conduction implants in recent years. The quality of research has also improved with more research looking at topics like sound quality, and of course the implant.”
