21 Mar Beyond Traditional Hearing Aids: CROS
What is a CROS aid?
Contralateral Routing of Signal or more commonly CROS aids are designed for single sided deafness. If there is a profound hearing loss in one ear that cannot be helped by a traditional hearing aid a CROS aid can be considered. A CROS aid can be used in 2 ways:
- CROS: One ear is normal and there is no usable hearing in the other ear
- BiCROS: One ear has hearing loss and there is no usable hearing in the other ear.
CROS hearing aids come in many different styles
