Since Cochlear introduced the Baha® Attract System one year ago, more than 2,000 people around the world have been implanted with the magnetic bone conduction solution. A clinical investigation* shows that the Baha Attract System demonstrates good performance**.

On September 7th 2014, a group of experienced surgeons gathered in Denver, Colorado, to review the global clinical data and their joint experience with the Baha Attract System. Together, the meeting participants have performed almost 100 Baha Attract surgeries in adult and pediatric patients.

The consensus of the meeting was that the Baha Attract System provides good clinical outcomes for patients with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss, and single-sided sensorineural deafness, with good wearing comfort and minimal post-operative care.

They reviewed clinical experiences and results from Baha Attract surgeries in both adult patients and children as young as five years of age, with specific focus on surgical/medical considerations.
