The analysis of the mechanics of the normal middle ear and of the middle ear with ossicular prosthesis is performed. The creation of the finite element model of the middle ear is described. The model of the normal ear includes tympanic membrane, ossicle chain and joint to oval window. The model of prosthesis simulates T-like type of the comercial product. The response of the stapes footplate on pressure excitations of tympanic membrane for different manners of prosthesis joints i.e. the rigid joint, the onesided knuclejoint and the bilateral knuclejoint were evaluated.
