Hearing allows individuals not only to perceive sounds, but to actively participate in conversations. Words, as they are exchanged in dialogue, connect individuals to others around them. For people affected by hearing loss, limited perception of sound creates a barrier to communication that can often lead to isolation and dissatisfaction.
If you or someone you care about is affected by severe to profound hearing loss, the MAESTRO™ Cochlear Implant System
from MED‑EL may be an effective solution. A cochlear implant system is a medical option for individuals with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss
. For individuals with this type of hearing loss, hearing aids provide little or no benefit.
A cochlear implant system directly stimulates the nerve fibres of the cochlea. The auditory nerve transmits these signals to the brain where they are perceived as sound. Cochlear implants are the first replacement of a human sense, the sense of hearing.
Users choose MAESTRO because it offers a superior hearing experience in real-life situations.
The system contains features optimised for the appreciation of music
and for listening in challenging situations.
