Assistive Devices

Many auditory and non-auditory devices - collectively known as Assistive Technology, Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs), or Hearing Assistance Technology (HAT) - are available to help people with all degrees of hearing loss. ALDs are for people who have mild hearing loss, but choose not to get a hearing aid as well as for people who need to augment what their hearing aids can do. Our audiologists are available to help you select the most appropriate ALD for your everyday hearing needs.

A bone conduction hearing device is an externally worn or surgically implanted device that uses mechanical vibrations to send sound through the bones of the skull to the inner ear. It can be used for patients who have conductive, mixed, or profound unilateral hearing loss.
