Goal: To design a low-cost, multi-purpose audio device for people suffering from conductive hearing loss.

Introduction: Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the outer ear or the middle ear. This means that while natural hearing is impaired, the inner ear is still functioning, and it requires an external stimulus to process sound. Bone conduction is a technique often employed to provide this stimulus. Current bone conduction devices are costly or require invasive operations, so Vibro-Tone is our robust, user-friendly, and low-cost solution.
