What is a Cochlear Hearing Aid?
Cochlear implants are surgically implanted devices that can provide sound to individuals with a severe or profound hearing disability. The Cochlear Hearing Aid is a neuroprosthetic device that bypasses the impaired hearing process of patients. Here, sound is converted to electrical signals and directly stimulates the auditory (hearing) nerve which in turn sends signals to the brain. With Aural Training, patients will be able to interpret the sound and improve their ability to understand speech.
How does it work?
The Cochlear Implant has two parts – the external sound processor (microphone) and an array of electrodes placed in the inner ear. With the technology, sound captured in the external device is converted into electrical signals and stimulates the auditory nerve, which the brain can interpret into sound, over time.
