Oticon Medical is a semi-implantable percutaneous (meaning by way of the skin) bone conduction hearing aid coupled to the skull through an implanted titanium fixture. The system transfers sound to the inner ear via the bone, bypassing the outer or middle ear. Candidacy is restricted to individuals with mixed hearing loss, single sided deafness and malformations of the ear (external or middle).

Oticon Medical’s Pronto and Pronto Pro hearing aid processors offer a wider abutment with less bone removal therefore allowing for a greater contact surface. Oticon Medical also offers a trade in special for those wanting to upgrade their transducer, especially when newer devices become available.
Oticon Medical Medical hearing aid can be upgraded at a later date.
