AIM

Surgeons have no objective means of monitoring the function of the cochlea during electrode insertion. The AIM™ system can help. It uses the implant to measure electrocochleography (or ECochG)  potentials generated by the inner ear and the auditory nerve in response to acoustic stimuli. This continuous and real-time measurement during electrode insertion can provide invaluable feedback to the surgeon.


The HiRes Ultra 3D cochlear implant

The first-of-its-kind HiRes™ Ultra 3D Cochlear Implant’s innovative multi-magnet assembly provides alignment to a 3D MRI field, allowing adult and pediatric users to safely undergo high-resolution imaging, such as 3.0 Tesla MRIs, without any preparation, surgery or head bandaging.


Chorus Sound Processor

Our latest Chorus™ sound processor for our first generation implant recipients. We are committed to supporting every Advanced Bionics implant recipient along their hearing journey and continuing to improving their hearing experience.



Bimodal Solution from AB+Phonak

Advanced Bionics and Phonak—Innovating Tomorrow’s Hearing Solutions

In 2009, AB joined Phonak as part of the Sonova Group of companies and began a collaboration unlike any other in the industry. Since then, the innovation leaders in cochlear implants and hearing aids have continuously combined technologies to deliver new, unequalled hearing solutions. This union has led to unique products that improve your ability to confidently connect and communicate with the world around you. Together, we will continue to challenge the boundaries of technology to provide you and your family with unrivaled hearing performance.

The two-ear solution designed to work together

Most cochlear implant wearers choose to a have only one cochlear implant despite having severe or profound hearing loss in both ears. The other un-implanted ear requires a super-powered hearing solution that works in harmony with the cochlear implant. This is known as bimodal hearing, and scientific evidence shows that combining a hearing aid with a cochlear implant results in significantly higher speech understanding and sound quality than provided by the cochlear implant or a hearing aid alone.10

Marvel technology has now been extended to these bimodal-hearing patients with the introduction of Phonak Sky Link Marvel and new Naída Link Marvel. Both the Sky Link Marvel and Naída Link Marvel can be worn together as hearing aids or be paired with an Advanced Bionics Sky CI Marvel or Naída CI Marvel sound processor. Because they are both based on Marvel technology, the cochlear implant sound processor and hearing aid are wirelessly connected and communicate with each other in a coordinated, dynamic way. Like their cochlear implant counterparts, both Sky Link Marvel and Naída Link Marvel also feature RogerDirect™, hands-free calls with own voice-pickup, and directly connect to iOS, Android or other Bluetooth-enabled devices.



Target CI fitting software 

Target CI offers hearing care professionals easier CI fittings with the industry-standard Noahlink Wireless, giving them and their patients the freedom and convenience of cable-free programming. For the first time ever, professionals can program a cochlear implant and the associated bimodal hearing aid with one software in one fitting session. Its intuitive workflow, and user-centric design and features are made for faster fittings, allowing professionals to spend more time with their patients, rather than the software. Target CI is also designed to be a smarter fitting tool, with default settings optimized for cochlear implant patients, giving professionals the flexibility to meet their patient-specific needs.



Scientific Evidence

As the innovation leader in the field of cochlear implants, we rely on scientific evidence to create the best possible products and programs. This is an integral part of our commitment to hearing care professionals and recipients.
