Augmented Bionics

2020 Science Start-ups (Falling Walls Venture)

Augmented Bionics is developing a non-surgical alternative to cochlear implants for people with severe to profound hearing loss. Our technology is based on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) which is a safe and FDA approved non-invasive neuromodulation technology. Hearing aids are ineffective for people with severe to profound hearing loss, and < 5% of these 70 million people who can only benefit from a cochlear implant, have an implant. Our TMS based bionic ear will provide the convenience of wearing a hearing aid with the functionality of a cochlear implant by reducing barriers to patient entry like risks, high costs, and specialist requirements associated with implant surgery.
