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.

Courtney Hunter shows us how in Healthy Living. 

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.
