Regula Posted February 10, 2013 Report Share Posted February 10, 2013 The manual for the BB Amadé Audio Processor says on p.33 on Initial Activation: "the patient should return for medical clearance and initial activation of the audio processor four weeks after implantation. An earlier activation should be avoided to ensure adequate healing". The german version of the manual is more explicit: "An earlier activation of the audioprocessor is not recommended, as the osseointegration of the cortical bone screws should be completed." There was an article in the Daily Mail about Alastair, whose Bonebridge was switched on the same day the operation took place. Like everyone in that situation, I was very impatient after the implantation and wonder whether the switch-on could take place sooner, and what precautions have to be taken. On the other hand, it makes sense that the screws should integrate well with the bone. Does anyone have further information on this subject?
