The Ponto 3 is the world’s most powerful family of abutment-level sound processors. Powered by the advanced sound processing Inium Sense chip and supported by Direct Sound Transmission, the Ponto 3 makes listening in different situations easier.
Sound is sent straight to the bone, and on to the inner ear and the brain, without it having to travel through the skin which dampens sound.
But that’s not all. The Ponto 3 is also as discreet and reliable as it is powerful.
Watch this short video for a more detailed look at the Ponto 3.

November 9th is dedicated to spreading hope and knowledge around a congenital birth defect, Microtia, which occurs when the ear has not been fully developed in the first trimester of pregnancy.
Often affecting one or both ears, Microtia is diagnosed at birth, but there is no understanding as to why it occurs. A Microtia ear is smaller in size, can have a peanut shaped appearance, and is often accompanied by Atresia. Atresia, also known as aural atresia, is the absence or closure of the external auditory ear canal.
Microtia occurs in 1 of every 6,000 to 12,000 births, and in some regions, the condition is rare enough that it can be difficult to find relevant information and support. At Oticon Medical, we’re proud to say that our Bone Anchored Hearing System (BAHS) has helped people affected by Microtia and Atresia. As we celebrate Microtia Awareness Day today, we hope to promote public awareness and hope for future generations.
