Traditionally used in hearing-aids, it’s fascinating to see bone conduction featuring in wearable technologies. Bone conduction is the physics behind bone-anchored hearing-aids (BAHAs) but with the new Bonebridge implant, no physical abutment is needed, making the device easier to wear.
Young athletes will appreciate hearing devices that double as tiny media devices and the flexibility of smartphone-powered wireless hearing-devices.
In time, these particular wearable technologies will shrink and redirect to new contexts developed specifically for the areas of education and health.
