There is a need for high-quality implantable microphones for existing semiimplantable middle-ear hearing systems and cochlear prosthesis to make them totally implantable, thus overcoming discomfort, inconvenience, and social stigma. This paper summarizes and compares the results of an in-vitro study on three design approaches and the feasibility of using microelectromechanical system acoustic sensors as implantable microphones to convert the umbo vibration directly into a high-quality sound… CONTINUE READING
