Technology Focus

The success of MED−EL hearing implant solutions lies in the unique blend of technologies, features, and techniques that provide superior hearing performance for implant systems that are both reliable and easy to use.

The MAESTRO™ Cochlear Implant System's exceptional performance can be traced to the combination of Complete Cochlear Coverage, FineHearing™ and Automatic Sound Management. These MED−EL technologies are especially designed to provide the best possible hearing performance for individuals with hearing loss.

The key to the success of the EAS™ Hearing Implant System is the effective preservation of residual hearing through use of especially soft and flexible electrode arrays. MED−EL believes that this is of highest priority in all implant surgeries. That is why MED−EL designs the world’s most atraumatic electrodes to preserve the delicate structures of the cochlea today and for the future.

For many users, bilateral cochlear implantation is a consideration – either at the time of their first surgery or later on after they have had an opportunity to gain experience using a cochlear implant. The advantages of bilateral implantation make it an important topic for parents, children, and adult hearing implant users.

The highly successful technology of the VIBRANT SOUNDBRIDGE® is also one of MED−EL's most special. Using highly miniaturised materials to stimulate the moving structures of the inner ear, the unique micro technology of the FMT creates vibrations so small that they have been compared with the heartbeat of an ant.
