The phenomenon of bone conduction has become better understood during the past century and over the past three decades numerous clinical and audiological studies have been described in relation to various bone conduction hearing aids. The understanding of osseointegration has led to further developments and the introduction of bone anchored hearing aids. The aims of this article are to provide the reader with an understanding of bone conduction and the evolution of the bone conduction hearing aids, with particular reference to bone anchored hearing aid implant systems.
