SAMBA audio processor

The SAMBA is the newest generation of audio processor for the VIBRANT SOUNDBRIDGE and the BONEBRIDGE. Along with its sleek design and interchangeable covers, comes the cutting-edge technology: The new SAMBA is an intelligent hearing system with innovative features such as the intelligent sound adapter, speech tracking and adaptive directional microphones. It also offers its users 5 individual programs and easy handling by using the remote control. The SAMBA offers wireless connectivity* via Bluetooth or telecoil to external devices such as mobile phones, FM systems and ALDs.  Wireless connectivity*  is  available by using the Siemens miniTEKTM..

Fitting of the SAMBA can be carried out  using the latest SYMFIT software, either wirelessly or via the battery-pill.

Professionals also benefit from:

  • Fewer audio processor variants which optimizes logistics
  • Data-logging which provides information about the usage of the SAMBA
  • Faster fitting due to the self-learning system of the SAMBA
  • The Vibrogram which provides a standardized fitting procedure for all VIBRANT products

*Wireless connectivity feature is available with the Siemens miniTEK™. Sivantos is not responsible for the operation with the SAMBA or its compliance with safety and regulatory standards in operation with the SAMBA.

1. MR Conditional at 1.5 Tesla

The magnets of the new VORP implant have been designed in such a way that there is limited interference between them and the magnetic field in the MRI scanner. The implant is therefore MR Conditional at 1.5 Tesla which gives users the possibility to still benefit from MRI scans, if required in the future.  The audio processor has to be removed before entering the MRI area.

2. Implant fixation with self-drilling screws

The new VORP implant is equipped with titanium wings that simplify fixation in the temporal bone. With the self-drilling cortical screws and screwdriver provided, the implant can be fixed very easily and quickly. This new feature of the VORP will save time during the surgical procedure.

3. Improved design and handling

With usability and easy handling in mind, the design of the new VORP implant has been optimized.  The coil section is now thinner, the demodulator/transition has been optimized and the conductor link is shorter in length with increased tensile strength.

4. Orientation-free FMT

The FMT of the new VORP implant has no attachment clip. This makes it orientation-free and therefore suitable for both, right and left ear and also simplifies the ordering and distribution processes for clinics.

To enable the attachment of the FMT to a mobile middle ear structure different Vibroplasty Couplers are offered. With the development of three new Coupler variants, along with the existing Couplers, the various indications for the SOUNDBRIDGE can be successfully treated.

Overview of the Vibroplasty Couplers:

FOR SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS

Incus-SP-Coupler

  • For FMT fixation on short process of the incus
  • New coupling without posterior tympanotomy, away from facial nerve and chorda tympani
  • The surgery in SNHL is easier and quicker
Incus-SP-Coupler

Incus-LP-Coupler

  • For FMT fixation on long process of the incus
  • Easier coupling without crimping
Incus-LP-Coupler

FOR CONDUCTIVE OR MIXED HEARING LOSS

RW-Soft-Coupler

  • For Round Window Vibroplasty with less drilling
  • More standardized surgical procedure for round window coupling
  • Easier handling, anatomically optimized
  • Dimensions: 1.5x1mm
RWS-Coupler

Vibroplasty CliP-Coupler

  • For standardized stapes-head coupling
Vibroplasty-CliP-Coupler
