Cochlear Implants
The MAESTRO Cochlear Implant System

If you or someone you care about is affected by severe to profound hearing loss, a 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.

Users choose the MAESTRO Cochlear Implant System 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.

MAESTRO consists of both an internal cochlear implant and an externally worn audio processor.

FineHearing™

For a richer hearing experience, FineHearing delivers 250 unique pitches of sound with fine structure sound processing to provide an enhanced perception of tone and pitch in all frequencies.

More about FineHearing

Triformance represents the powerful synergy between Structure Preservation, Complete Cochlear Coverage, and FineHearing.

These elements work together to provide optimal hearing performance. Structure Preservation techniques allow a flexible electrode array to be gently inserted fully into the cochlea, thereby achieving Complete Cochlear Coverage while preserving delicate neural structures. Complete Cochlear Coverage provides FineHearing technology to the entire cochlea, which enables the perception of natural pitches throughout the full range of sound frequencies. FineHearing technology provides the optimal benefit only when the delicate cochlea has been protected through Structure Preservation.

While individually these features each provide a distinct benefit, it is the synergy of these technologies together that provides the best possible hearing performance for our cochlear implant recipients.
