Vibrant® Soundbridge® Implant System
Amadé Soundbridge Audio Processor.
The outer or external component is known as the Amadé Audio Processor. The Audio Processor contains a microphone that picks up sound from the environment and transmits it across the skin to the internal receiver in the VORP™. The signal is then delivered to the Floating Mass Transducer™ through a wire, which causes the FMT™ to vibrate. The FMT™ mechanically stimulates the auditory ossicles, mimicking the natural hearing process.
