Electrodes Designed for Choice: Without Compromise
The HiRes Ultra implant family offers two electrode designs, the straight HiFocus™ SlimJ electrode and the precurved HiFocus™ Mid-Scala electrode, to offer the surgeon a choice based on their practice preferences and the recipient’s anatomy. Both electrodes share the HiFocus design elements.
HiFocus electrode contacts are encased in a slim flexible tapered silicone carrier to minimize insertion forces and damage to cochlear structures during surgery.1,2,3 HiFocus electrodes are designed with balanced stiffness, which allows for easy insertion within the scala tympani while making it less prone to bend upwards towards the basilar membrane and translocate. By minimizing cochlear disruption, HiFocus electrodes offer an increased opportunity for better hearing outcomes.4,5
