In March 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the Baha 5 SuperPower Sound Processor for use in the United States, and Tufts Medical Center is one of the centers now offering the state-of-the-art technology.

One of the first patients fitted with the Baha 5 SuperPower  is young Molly. Her parents share:

“We just wanted to send you a quick update on Molly and her new hearing aid. She loves it and wears it all day! We have seen a huge difference in Molly since she started wearing the new one last one week. She is more vocal, more attentive, more engaged, and can definitely hear better. She even stopped and looked—while she was watching TV—when she heard a knock on the door. We have never seen her do this before!

Molly also sat on the couch and watched a DVD on TV while sitting next to Kaitlyn {her sister}. The microphone was connected to the TV, and she was very attentive and laughed and swayed when familiar songs came on like “Wheels on the Bus.” She sat next to Kaitlyn for about half an hour, which is something she has never done before for that long, and then they looked at books together. Normally she has to sit in a booster chair on a dining room chair closer to the TV and separate from Kaitlyn and the rest of us.

School has also seen a difference in Molly, as she has been more engaged, more aware, and making lots of vocalizations!! The difference in such a short time is amazing.”
