Success in this market will depend upon whether companies can get reimbursement for these products. Furthermore, market growth resulting from any future approvals is expected to be small, as bone-anchored hearing aids already treat mixed and conductive hearing loss and are much less expensive. Any share in that particular market must be won by quality and patient satisfaction, which is expected to be high with middle ear treatment.
Middle ear implants (MEIs) are a relatively newer entrant into the hearing device market. MEIs are designed for people who cannot use or are dissatisfied with conventional hearing aids. MEIs are used on people who have moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss or conductive/mixed hearing loss. While the technology uses a direct drive similar to those of percutaneous bone conduction system, it is distinct in both its designed indication as well as its function.
