Our cochlear implants mimic “natural” hearing so you can experience sounds as they are meant to be heard. This is possible because of technologies unique to MED-EL’s cochlear implant: long electrode arrays and FineHearing sound coding.
Together, they deliver exceptional sound quality and superior hearing performance.
In natural hearing, sound vibrations travel to the inner ear—the cochlea—which is lined with thousands of tiny hair cells. These hair cells turn the vibrations
into nerve signals and send them to your brain. If these hair cells don’t work, it causes sensorineural hearing loss.
That’s where a cochlear implant system comes in. It consists of an audio processor 1, which sits on your ear, and the cochlear implant itself 2. They work together to bypass those non-functioning hair cells and sends sound signals to your brain.
