“Listening with the brain”
Sensorineural Hearing Impairment Aids
DCC K.K. Japan
PRESTINTM has a 5 year successful track record with treating sensory hearing problems.
As a result of our continuing research in pursuit of a safe, next generation
hearing aids, we released the PRESTINTM Bone Conduction Sensory Hearing Aid in 2013, which is designed for making
brain activate by supplied enough sound data, by uses an unique Prestin technology completely different than piezoelectiric or
electromagnetic induction used in current Air Conductive Hearing Aid and
Bone Conducted Hearing Aids.
The hallmarks of this device are:
|1.||Sounds are transmitted through even thicker skin, so clarity of consonants in the high range is maintained. Melodies in music and lyrics can be heard, while the subtly of in violin and the brilliance of cymbals is maintained.|
|2.||The quantity of aural data is 1,000 times greater than conventional hearing aids, allowing or detailed sound clarity.|
|3.||Vastly improved response speed (the time between when aural data enters the driver and actually exits as sound) is vastly superior (1 mil sec. in conventional hearing aids as opposed to our aid, at 1 micro seconds. This allows listeners to comprehend who they are trying to listen to even with multiple speakers present. This response time clears the threshold of 2/100,000 sec〜4/100,000 sec necessary for the brain to have the “Selective Attention” (known as “Cocktail Party Effect”). As a result of selective attention, noise levels are minimal just as with a subject with healthy hearing.|
|4.||Surgical operations are not necessary.|
|5.||The device is scalable to mass production.|
A monitor was conducted at a national hospital of over 100 subjects with
serious hearing problems using the proto type transducer.
With the support of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW), clinical data was taken on 40 subjects with severe or profound impairment (70dB~90dB) of varying causes, different age, and sex. This data was publicly approved by Kimitaka Kaga, Hon. Prof. Tokyo Univ., Former head director of the Japan Otological Society). The results showed that the device was effective in the majority of the sensory impaired patients (70dB~90dB). Under the hearing impairment classifications set forth by WHO 21~40dB is slight impairment, 41~60dB is moderate impairment, 61~80dB is severe impairment, and more than 81dB is profound impairment. Accordingly the device is fit for initial stage profound impairment.
In the United States, of the 24 million of subjects with sensory impairment in both ears, 19.2 million are due to presbyacusis (according to NHANES). These people cannot hear the voice of their loved ones, enjoy television or songs they have loved their whole life. Others include military retirees who suffer from hearing loss induced by weapon fire who lead restricted lifestyles.
The world first and only hearing aids for sensorineural hearing impairment “PRESTINTM transducer, was introduced at MedGadget in June, 2015.
Since then around 100 countries have visited DCC’s website, it implies that people all over the world are interested in this new technology of realistic solution for sensorineural hearing impairment.
We are developing an easy and comfortable headphone for 100 years old people. Furthermore, scholars and doctors have pointed out that functional impairments that exist in diseases like Alzheimer's may be treated by sound stimulation to the brain.
