A cochlear implant is a small electronic device which is surgically implanted, bypasses the damaged portions of the ear and sends converted signals to different parts of the auditory nerves to process.
It is designed and optimized to mimic the function and hearing of a healthy inner ear. It replaces the function of damaged sensory hair cells inside the inner ear to provide clearer sound as compared to the sound clarity of what hearing aids can provide.
We work with the HiRes Ultra 3D Cochlear Implants and Naída CI Sound Processor that are designed and optimized by our partner, Advanced Bionics. Learn more about how both parts work together to bypass the damaged part of the ear and sends sound straight to the acoustic nerve.
