Single sided hearing aids offer the industry’s first rechargeable solution for those with single-sided hearing loss. If you’re unable to hear in one ear and have normal hearing in the other ear, you may benefit from a CROS solution.
A Contralateral Routing Of Signals (CROS) hearing aid is a type of hearing aid that is used to treat a condition in which the patient has no usable hearing in one ear and minimal hearing loss or normal hearing in the other ear. This is referred to as Single Sided Deafness. The CROS hearing Aid takes sound from the ear with poorer hearing and transmits to the ear with better hearing. The goal of this device is to give the patient two-sided hearing when true bilateral hearing is not possible. The CROS system is an alternative to traditional unilateral hearing aid fittings in which the patient receives no information from the side with hearing loss.
