Biomaterials: Hearing Implants

Biomaterials are further evolving.  Biomaterials for hearing implants depend on components, structural polymers, and electrodes. Biomaterials have transformed the medical treatment of hearing loss.  The ear dysfunction, hearing loss is able to be addressed and repaired via a device implant that leverages biomaterials. Alloplastic and homograft biomaterials have been used to restore hearing with ossicular replacement prostheses, cochlear implants, and implantable middle ear devices. Biomaterials are used in implantable middle ear devices and inner ear implants.  Biomaterials for middle ear applications of implantable devices are significant.  The site of implantation and the mass of the implant dictate the choice of biomaterials. Hermetic sealing of an implant is best achieved by the use of metals, not polymers. The Osteocompatibility of an ossicular implant can be enhanced by the incorporation of calcium phosphates such as hydroxyapatite coatings.  The market research study provides insight into market driving forces, assessment of market opportunities, market share analysis, and market forecasts.
