SoundByte system helps you hear from your teeth
You may feel that the senses here are all messed up but this is actually good news for some unfortunate few who suffer from hearing impairments. Those suffering with hearing impediments in one ear (Unilateral Hearing Loss or UHL) can now make use of the SoundByte system to solve their hearing problems. The system consists of a small unit that’s worn behind the ear and in the mouth. The part that’s behind the ear captures the sound and transmits it to the in-mouth one that sends it to the inner ear.
The whole technology may seem awkward to some but there’s always the cure that counts. I ain’t no doctor but I feel it’s got something to do with the ENT path or something of that sort.
