The
Awesome Ear

The ear is amazing. The parts work together in perfect harmony to convert sound waves to mechanical signals, and then to the electrical signals that your brain perceives as sound.

Unfortunately, some of us have ears that don’t work as well as they should. Many times it’s because the tiny hair-like cells of the cochlea are struggling to do their job. That’s where Esteem comes in.

The
Esteem Implant

Esteem works with your ear’s anatomy to let sound in the way nature intended. There are no microphones to distort conversations or amplify wind. And there is nothing in your ear canal to block sound’s natural path. Instead, the device’s three components work together with your ear to deliver Esteem’s natural hearing.

Esteem's
Natural Hearing

Sound enters your outer ear and funnels down your ear canal causing your eardrum to vibrate. All as it naturally would.

  • 1

    The Esteem Sensor then converts the vibrations into electrical signals that are sent to the implanted Esteem Sound Processor.

  • 2

    The Esteem Sound Processor receives, adjusts and intensifies the signals to fit your unique hearing needs.

  • 3

    The Esteem Driver translates these customized signals to intensified vibrations. The vibrations are transferred to the inner ear where the cochlea cells are stimulated, causing you to hear more natural sound.

  • The Personal Programmer lets you make adjustments for the specific hearing situation. (not shown)
