BHM – next generation of bone conduction hearing systems
Hearing is much more than simply perceiving sounds, noises and words. Hearing is the key to the world. At BHM, our goal is to offer people with hearing loss a significant increase in quality of life – by delivering innovative hearing devices. The core expertise offered by BHM comprises bone conduction hearing systems in a wide variety of applications without any risk from surgery.
How bone conduction hearing systems work
Bone conduction systems receive and amplify sound waves, transforming them into vibrations that are forwarded directly to the cranial bone. The vibrations are perceived by the cochlea (the portion of the inner ear shaped like a small shell) as tones, with any obstructions in the middle or outer ear being circumvented. Bone conduction hearing systems are mainly worn behind the ear near the mastoid.
Types of bone conduction hearing system
These systems are available as non-implantable devices combined with glasses or integrated in headgear, hairbands etc. The major advantage of these hearing systems is that any risk in relation to surgery can be avoided. This is where BHM, the Austrian hearing aid developer and manufacturer, comes in.
Bone conduction hearing systems by BHM
BHM is a specialist in non-surgical solutions using bone conduction technology. The Austrian specialist manufacturer offers a miniature bone conduction hearing system and a pocket hearing device that can be adapted – due to being extremely flexible – to the individual needs of each wearer. In Addition, spectacle wearers can have their hearing aid integrated into their glasses. Bone conduction hearing glasses are a vision aid and a hearing device in one, as the glasses temple sends vibrations to the inner ear. BHM bone conduction glasses are notable for their high level of comfort, as well as their reliability, technical innovation and excellent hearing experience – tailored precisely to the needs of each wearer. BHM also offers a wide range of fashionable fronts and extension tips.
Contact mini – developed specially for children
The small contact mini adds a hearing aid designed specially for children to the BHM range of bone conduction hearing systems. Contact mini was developed specially for children with mild to moderate hearing loss. The compact device consists of two interconnected units: an electronic compartment and a tiny miniature receiver that can be easily and invisibly integrated into diverse types of headwear, hairbands or head jewellery. Children therefore benefit from total freedom of movement and are not restricted in any way. More and more adults are also discovering the benefits of contact mini. Sports enthusiasts, in particular, find that contact mini is a practical companion when running or skiing, for example, seeing that it can be integrated into sports caps and ski helmets, among others.
High-end technology for excellent hearing support: contact forte
Our new contact forte is an impressive member of the BHM family, boasting comprehensive functions, leading-edge technology, wireless connection to a range of communication devices, and the option of being combined with an implant. A variety of wearing options assures freedom of movement whatever the situation: contact forte can be integrated into caps, hair bands, headbands and glasses temples. This innovative hearing system can also be attached directly behind the ear using an adhesive tape – nothing else needed!
Quality made in Austria
BHM develops sophisticated hearing systems that are manufactured exclusively in Austria and marketed worldwide.
Its wealth of experience and commitment to perfection make BHM a globally respected specialist in bone and air conduction hearing devices.
