What is a cochlear implant?

A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants do the work of damaged parts of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain.

Cochlear implants help those with severe to profound hearing loss in both ears who are not receiving enough benefit when using hearing aids.

Living an active life with a Cochlear™ implant

Use your natural hearing with Cochlear™ Hybrid™ Hearing.

Cochlear Hybrid Hearing helps those with high-frequency hearing loss (also known as ski slope hearing loss) or those who have some hearing, but still miss many sounds.

If you are able to hear low-pitched sounds, but are not able to hear high-pitched sounds like children’s voices and birds chirping, even when using hearing aids, Hybrid Hearing may be a solution.

The Cochlear Nucleus Hybrid Implant System is the first FDA-approved solution to use Hybrid Hearing to help treat this type of hearing loss.

How the Nucleus 6 Hybrid System works?

Cochlear implants are better than hearing aids in noisy environments

If you have severe to profound hearing loss, hearing aids may not be enough to help you access all sounds and be able to understand speech, especially when it's noisy.

Cochlear implants are designed to replace the function the damaged sensory hair cells in the inner ear and mimic natural hearing to provide you clearer sound than what hearing aids can provide.
