In this paper, the vibration characteristics of stapes, driven by the implanted differential floating mass transducer (DFMT) in the human middle ear, are analyzed by using an electrical model. The electrical model has been simulated by using the PSpice, in which the simulated results are compared with the experimental results by using the fabricated DFMT and the human temporal bones.
