Title (EN) HEARING PROSTHESIS
(FR) PROTHESE AUDITIVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to an in-the-ear hearing prosthesis (1) comprising at least one loudspeaker arrangement (20) and at least one microphone arrangement (6) acoustically communicating with at least one sound input portion (7), said hearing prosthesis (1) comprising a first portion (8, 9) by means of which the hearing prosthesis may be fixated in at least a part of an ear canal, and said hearing prosthesis comprising at least one projection (2) connected to said first portion (8, 9) said projection being suspended so as to be located at least partly outside the concha when the hearing prosthesis is positioned in an ear. According to the invention, the projection may serve as both a vase for a user interface such as switches or volume control, and may as well facilitate and a grip to be used by the user when inserting and retracting the prosthesis into and from the auditory canal.
(FR)L'invention concerne une prothèse auditive (1) intra-auriculaire comprenant au moins un système de haut parleur (20), et au moins un système (6) de microphone communiquant par voie acoustique avec au moins une partie (7) entrée du son. Cette prothèse auditive (1) comprend une première partie (8, 9) permettant la fixation de la prothèse dans une partie au moins du canal auditif, et au moins un prolongement (2) relié à cette première partie (8, 9) et suspendu de manière à être positionné au moins partiellement à l'extérieur de la conque lorsque la prothèse auditive est placée dans l'oreille. Ce prolongement peut servir à la fois de base pour des interfaces utilisateur telles que commutateurs ou régulateur du volume, et constituer un élément de préhension, facilitant l'insertion et le retrait de la prothèse dans l'oreille et hors de cette dernière.
