  1. 1. Bone Conduction Hearing in Human Communication - Sensitivity, Transmission, and Applications

    Author : Sabine Reinfeldt; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transcutaneous; one s own voice; bone conduction; occlusion effect; communication system; sensitivity; bone conduction implant; transmission; bone-anchored hearing aid; bone conduction microphone;

    Abstract : Sound perceived via Bone Conduction (BC) consists of vibrations transmitted to the cochleae through the skull bone from either one's own voice, the surrounding sound field, or a BC transducer. In two-way communication systems, BC is believed to improve the sound quality when used in specific environments, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Direct Drive Bone Conduction Stimulation: Experimental Studies on Functionality and Transmission with Focus on the Bone Conduction Implant

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Cristina Rigato; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vibrations; audiological tests; Bone Anchored Hearing Aids; Bone Conduction; comparative study; Bone Conduction Implant; transcutaneous;

    Abstract : Sound is conducted to the inner ear in two ways: by air and by bone. Air conduction (AC) hearing consists of sound waves entering the ear canal and reaching the cochlea, the main hearing organ, via the middle ear. In bone conduction (BC) hearing, instead, the transmission is through soft tissues and bone. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Novel Bone Conduction Implant System

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Hamidreza Taghavi; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sound radiation; amplitude modulation; low-power systems.; bone conduction implant; feedback; bone anchored hearing aid; RF power amplifier; gain headroom; implantable transducer; wireless power and data transmission; RF power and data link;

    Abstract : Bone conduction is the process by which an acoustic signal vibrates the skull bones to stimulate the cochlea. Patients with pure conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, and single sided deafness are sometimes poorly rehabilitated by conventional air conduction hearing aids due to for example the functionality losses in the middle ear.

  4. 4. Bone conducted sound transmission for communication systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Sabine Reinfeldt; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bone conduction; sound field hearing; occlusion effect; transcranial transmission; communication system; bone conduction microphone; hearing protection devices; hearing;

    Abstract : Bone conducted (BC) sound is vibrations in the skull bone that are transmitted to the cochlea and perceived as sound, originating from a sound field or a vibration transducer. This transmission path can be advantageous for communication systems in some situations, e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. A New Audiometric Bone Vibrator, Radioear B81, and the Bone Conduction Implant with Emphasis on Magnetic Resonance Imaging

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Karl-Johan Fredén Jansson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; image artifact; magnetically induced torque; balanced electromagnetic separation transducer; magnetic resonance imaging.; bone vibrator; bone conduction; retention magnet; demagnetization;

    Abstract : Hearing by air conduction (AC) and bone conduction (BC) are attributed to be the natural ways of stimulating the cochlea. With AC hearing, the cochlea is stimulated by air pressure variations via the ear canal, whereas with BC hearing, sound vibrations are transmitted thru the skull bone to the cochlea. READ MORE
