Now, according to About.com Deafness, the SoundBite has received FDA approval.
There's a lot more information on their website. The In the Mouth (ITM) device can fit in the upper left or right of the mouth:
It contains electronics, a sealed, flat, rechargeable battery, wireless capability that picks up sound transmissions from the BTE, and a small actuator that converts those signals into vibratory energy. All of these miniaturized components are hermetically sealed inside a dental grade acrylic that has been safely used for making dentures for many years.According to their press release, 95% of patients in the FDA trial were "satisfied or very satisfied" after six months.
What do you think? Would you wear an In the Mouth hearing aid?
