While hearing aids are a solution for many people, there comes a point when they may no longer be effective. To regain the sounds and joys of life they are missing, an increasing number of people with significant hearing loss are turning to the advanced technology of cochlear implants.
Cochlear implants allow people to reconnect with loved ones, seize more opportunities at work, and enjoy being able to hear their best in any environment.
For children with significant hearing loss, cochlear implants can provide the hearing they need to develop language skills, excel in school, and join in any activities, including water-based sports and games.
This sophisticated technology is designed to mimic natural hearing for those with significant hearing loss. Made up of both an internal implant and external sound processor, the cochlear implant system bypasses the damaged part of the ear and sends electrical signals directly to the hearing nerve.
Most cochlear implant recipients demonstrate significant improvement in their ability to understand speech, even in noisy environments, compared to hearing-aid wearers.
