Our philosophy has always been to provide a closer match to natural hearing. Our unique full-length electrode arrays help enable more accurate pitch-place stimulation of the natural tonotopic map of the cochlea. Our unique FineHearing sound coding is designed to mimic natural rate coding in the second turn of the cochlea.
Now, with OTOPLAN and our MAESTRO 9.0 fitting software, we are excited to be reaching closer to natural hearing than ever before with cochlear implants. Our default FineHearing frequency allocation is designed to follow the natural tonotopic map of the cochlea. However, we know that one size does not fit all. This is why we are always striving to provide a closer match for each individual patient.
With our new Anatomy Based Fitting tools, you can easily fine-tune the frequency map to be closer to the natural map for each individual cochlea. By combining detailed imaging data from OTOPLAN with MAESTRO 9.0, you can now quickly assign center frequencies based on the actual anatomical location of each electrode contact.
