What is a cochlear implant and how can you benefit?
A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that helps replace the function of the damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants do the work of the damaged parts of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain.
Cochlear implants help those with moderate to profound hearing loss who are not receiving enough benefit when using hearing aids. Although there is no cure for hearing loss, the cochlear implant has become widely recognized as an established treatment for those with profound hearing loss.
- Designed to make sounds louder and clearer and restore access to missing sounds
