Healthy Living: ADHEAR Overcomes Microtia
Until recently, patients with the condition microtia could either wear a bone-conduction hearing aid attached to a headband or have surgery to implant a screw or magnet into the skull to attach a hearing aid.
Now a newly FDA approved adhesive device is changing that.
The ADHEAR device can come on an off with a click to the waterproof adhesive adapter.
That adapter has to be changed every three to seven days.
ADHEAR has been available since August 2018 and may be covered by insurance.
