Above all else, the purpose of a cochlear implant is to create the best possible communication between the electrode array and the delicate neural structures of cochlea. All of the incredible technology in our cochlear implants flows across this intricate bridge between technology and nature.
How do we provide the most natural hearing possible with a cochlear implant? By engineering our electrode arrays to most closely match the precise natural design and function of the cochlea.
Our incredibly flexible electrode arrays help preserve the delicate structures in the cochlea, enabling atraumatic scala tympani insertion all the way to the apical region. This allows our full-length electrode arrays to provide two full turns of Complete Cochlear Coverage, which maximizes the natural tonotopic stimulation range.[ft][ft][ft][ft][ft][ft][ft]
Finally, our unique variable-rate FineHearing sound coding is the only sound coding that uses two types of sound coding to mimic both tonotopic stimulation and temporal phase-locking in natural hearing for a sound quality that no other cochlear implant can match.[ft][ft][ft][ft][ft][ft]
All together, these unique MED-EL technologies enable our electrodes to provide the closest to natural stimulation all along the cochlea for the best hearing outcomes.
But one size does not fit all—which is why we have individualized electrode arrays to best fit each unique cochlea. By enabling the closest possible match between electrode array and each individual cochlea, we’re taking our cochlear implants closer to natural hearing than ever before.[ft][ft]
