A simple, contactless electromagnetic transducer design for implantable hearing aids is investigated. It consists of a coil and a permanent magnet, both of which are intended for implantation in the middle ear. The transducer is modeled and optimized using computer simulations, followed by experimental verification. It is shown that the proposed transducer(More)
A life-size mechanical middle ear model and human temporal bones were used to evaluate three different middle ear transducers for implantable hearing aids: the driving rod transducer (DRT), the floating mass transducer (FMT) or vibrant sound bridge, and the contactless transducer (CLT). Results of the experiments with the mechanical model were within the(More)
