In the news: Actor Billy Coughlin had his hearing restored with the Baha Attract System


Young British actor Billy Coughlin who we wrote about in April, is featured in an article in Dailymail about his experience with the Baha Attract System:

A revolutionary magnetic implant has restored the hearing of a young actor who went deaf in one ear at the age of 17 – and gives new hope to the thousands of Britons who cannot benefit from traditional hearing aids.
