ADHEAR is MED-EL’s revolutionary new bone conduction system. What’s different about it? There is no implant involved and instead, it simply sticks onto your skin behind the ear. ADHEAR—Stick. Click. Hear.
you can search clinical trials for Med-El here and see trials like this one for children who fall outside typical approval for CIs
You can also contact Med-El US and ask for assistance in finding a trial your son may qualify for in the US.
We have only seen one audiologist (with Carilion, in Virginia) since his ABR, and have not been very impressed with her. She seems hesitant about things, and mentioned that her tech is not sufficient to test his hearing at all levels.... and she said we need to give it enough time with the hearing aid in left ear.... so we feel like we're on our own if we want to get any real /fast results.
Any suggestions? A friend mentioned UVA..?
