The ability to communicate is an elementary part of our lives. And without good hearing, communication becomes difficult if not impossible. This is why researchers continue to work on optimizing prostheses that improve hearing. Now researchers at the Universität Stuttgart in Germany have opened up a new avenue of exploration for developing middle ear prostheses. Their investigations concentrated on the impact of the ossicular chain in the middle ear, which directly affects hearing.
