The Alpha 1 (M) is an implantable hearing device and an alternative to traditional bone anchored hearing systems that require a through the skin abutment - the most notable being Baha®. “Many patients suffer with their hearing loss rather than choose a penetrating abutment. The Alpha 1 system will make a very attractive option for these patients,” says Dr. David Friedland, MD, PhD, the Division Chief of Otology and Research at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
The Sophono Alpha 1 (M) device can be used by adults and children as young as 5 years old.
