The discreet package requires minimal drilling, making it suitable for all implant recipients — adults and children — and exceeds industry standard for impact resistance.1
The HiRes Ultra features the HiFocus™ Mid-Scala electrode, designed to protect the delicate structures of the cochlea and to suit individual patient anatomy and surgical preferences for the best possible hearing outcomes. Choosing AB allows you or your child to benefit from tomorrow’s technology with today’s implant.
The HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode has been designed for ideal positioning in the Scala Tympani and full spectrum coverage for maximum performance6, while protecting the delicate cochlear structure.
The HiRes Ultra cochlear implant and HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode have been approved by Health Canada, to be implanted in adult patients with unilateral hearing loss, also known as single sided deafness (SSD), and incapacitating tinnitus unresponsive to the conventional treatment of tinnitus.
