Design and Stimulation of a Middle Ear Model to Aid with Otological StudiesPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The Universitätsspital Zürich expressed a need for a teaching model to enhance the understanding of sound mechanics, anatomy, and physiology of the middle ear. This project focused on replicating the middle ear and its surrounding components, as well as demonstrating the translation of vibrations in a healthy and abnormal middle ear. The model was acoustically stimulated, and accelerometers measured resulting vibrations. This model aids student understanding of the ear, and therefore in developing new options to address the challenges of hearing loss.
