What is a Cochlear implant ?
The cochlear implant is a medical device, which provides hearing sensation for people who have a severe to profound sensori-neural hearing loss. it is designed to bypass the damaged parts of the inner ear and send electrical stimulation directly to the auditory nerve which is then interpreted as sound by the brain.
 
The cochlear implant is a miracle for persons with severe to profound sensori-neural hearing loss,who receive little or no benefit from hearing aids.
 
Worldwide, over 75,000 children and adults have benefited from Cochlear implantation.

Testimonials
"Everybody has different hearing needs.Research has consistently demonstrated that every person’s speech coding needs are unique.We refer to this as a person’s own ‘hearing fingerprint’.The Freedom implant delivers a broad range including new stimulation rates in ACE™ (RE) and CIS (RE)."
 
"Our earliest implant recipients have already received upgrades resulting in  increased performance. This has been achieved without the need for additional surgery or replacement of the implant. For example, our Nucleus recipients implanted in 1983 have had access to five upgrades in speech processor technology over the last 12 years."
