Bone Conduction

Our inner ear is encased within the temporal bone of the skull, which resonates when stimulated by sound. Bone conduction stimulation as provided by programmes at Cluas, directly stimulates the systems of the inner ear.

Many people who are hypersensitive to sound are in fact hypersensitive to bone conduction. We are able to see this on the Listening Test (elevated bone conduction curve). By using bone conduction stimulation we are able to reduce this sensitivity.

Bone conduction stimulation is also very beneficial for people who have a vestibular deficit, gross motor difficulties, motor planning difficulties, spatial awareness difficulties, poor balance and co-ordination or speech and language difficulties.
