If you or someone you care about has severe-to-profound hearing loss, a cochlear implant (CI) system from MED-EL may be an effective solution. A cochlear implant system is a treatment option for people with severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss. For those with this type of hearing loss, hearing aids provide little or no benefit.
Recipients choose MED-EL cochlear implant systems because they offer a superior hearing experience in real-life situations. Our CI systems are optimized for music appreciation and for listening in challenging situations.
A cochlear implant system consists of an externally worn audio processor and an internal cochlear implant.
The thinnest and lightest processor, OPUS 2 has children's and body-worn wearing options to suit even the smallest ears. OPUS 2 is ideal for both children and adults. The processor has three energy-efficient battery options for flexibility, and wireless connectivity for syncing with external audio devices.
In a study that simulated real-life listening situations, participants were surrounded by noise of various levels. As the listening situation became more challenging, only recipients with MED-EL systems continued to improve and be able to understand 50% of speech.1More about this study
