Why MED-EL: Cochlear Implants
When your patients look for a cochlear implant, they don’t want a device or a technology. They want a solution to a problem. They want to unlock their potential, reach for every opportunity, and to hear life to the fullest.
That’s why our design philosophy is to provide the closest match to natural hearing from the ground up—creating a hearing experience that no other cochlear implant can match.
Our philosophy is to adapt the implant to your patient, instead of adapting your patient to the implant. Our individualized cochlear implants offer the closest to natural hearing in each cochlea from the very beginning—enabling each recipient to experience MyBest™ Hearing. With MED-EL, your patients can enjoy hearing life like it was meant to be heard.
We didn’t stop at the best hearing performance. We want every recipient to have the best possible hearing experience in their everyday lives. That’s why we design our audio processors to provide intuitive handling, stylish designs, and all-day wearing comfort. Wireless charging, Bluetooth connectivity, water-resistant designs—our processors are made for real life
Choosing a cochlear implant is a life-long decision. Through all life’s bumps and bruises, MED-EL will be there for your patients. We created a one-of-a-kind magnet to deliver outstanding MRI safety*. Our robust titanium cochlear implants deliver proven long-term reliability your patients can always count on.
Only MED-EL delivers the proven combination of superior hearing performance, ease of use, and peace of mind that every recipient deserves.
Closest to Natural Hearing
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 protect the delicate structures in the cochlea, enabling atraumatic 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. Finally, our unique variable-rate FineHearing sound coding is the only sound coding that mimics the temporal phase-locking in natural hearing for a sound quality that no other cochlear implant can match.
