Piezoelectric Bone Conduction Hearing Implants

Piezoelectric Bone Conduction Hearing Implants

Context: The ENT department at Command Hospital in Pune recently achieved a significant milestone by successfully conducting two piezoelectric Bone Conduction Hearing Implants (BCI). This accomplishment marks a historic achievement for the hospital as the first government healthcare facility in India to perform such procedures.

• The successful implementation of the piezoelectric Bone Conduction Hearing Implant (BCI) system at Command Hospital in Pune represents a groundbreaking advancement in addressing hearing impairment for patients with conductive loss, mixed hearing loss, and 
single-sided deafness.
• This achievement is particularly noteworthy as it caters to individuals who may not qualify for cochlear implants or derive sufficient benefit from hearing aids or middle-ear surgery.
• Piezoelectricity, the underlying principle behind this innovative technology, involves the generation of electric charge in certain materials when subjected to mechanical stress. 
• Piezoelectric materials are naturally occurring, such as quartz, and are also synthesized, with ferroelectric ceramics being the most commonly utilized synthetic piezoelectric materials.
• This milestone not only showcases the hospitals commitment to cutting-edge medical interventions but also underscores the transformative impact of piezoelectric technology in improving the lives of hearingimpaired individuals.Siachen Day 2024 observe
