Triformance® For More Natural Hearing

The SYNCHRONY System features Triformance for more natural hearing in any listening environment. Triformance is the combination of three MED-EL technologies that work together to deliver the most natural hearing possible for your patients.

Structure Preservation

Specifically engineered for Structure Preservation to ensure cochlear integrity, FLEX electrode arrays are the most atraumatic electrode arrays available. Uniquely designed not to deviate into other scalae and ideal for both round window and cochleostomy surgical approaches, FLEX electrode arrays are recommended for safe, complete electrode insertion—ensuring a hearing future.

Complete Cochlear Coverage

Stimulation of the cochlea from the base to the apical region provides recipients with the full spectrum of sound for a more natural hearing experience. Only long, flexible electrode arrays that facilitate Structure Preservation can be inserted fully into the cochlea, achieving Complete Cochlear Coverage for optimal hearing outcomes.


FineHearing is the only sound coding technology that delivers a richer perception of sound in all frequencies, including deep bass tones. Our cochlear implant recipients benefit from a fuller, more accurate perception of sound through FineHearing’s precise control of essential sound information— in both quiet and noisy environments.

SYNCHRONY® Cochlear Implant

In Sync with Natural Hearing

Smallest Titanium Implant

The smallest and lightest titanium cochlear implant available—making it the ideal choice for even the youngest candidates.

Atraumatic Electrode Arrays

Engineered to preserve delicate cochlear structures, MED-EL’s flexible electrode arrays provide Complete Cochlear Coverage for superior hearing performance.

Revolutionary Magnet Design

Conditionally MRI safe even at 3.0 T with the magnet in place, the magnet can optionally be removed to minimise image distortion on MRI head scans.

Proven Stability

The SYNCHRONY PIN implant features titanium fixation pins proven to secure the placement of the implant for outstanding stability.

Unparalleled MRI Safety

3.0 Tesla MRI—Without Magnet Removal*

SYNCHRONY combines the highest cochlear implant MRI safety with proven performance, reliability, and the most comprehensive portfolio of atraumatic electrodes available.

See full MRI conditions

Conditionally MRI safe at 0.2, 1.0, 1.5, and even 3.0 T without the need for magnet removal.
If necessary, the magnet can be removed to minimise image distortion on MRI head scans.
Rotatable, self-aligning magnet greatly reduces torque for increased patient comfort during MRI scans.
The magnet can only be removed from the bottom side of the implant, making accidental dislocation of the magnet practically impossible.
SYNCHRONY enables 3.0 T MRI without the need for head bandage or splint kits.

* It has been demonstrated that no known hazards exist in specified MRI environments under conditions as described in the SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant product labeling.

MED-EL Electrodes

Comprehensive Electrode Portfolio

Specifically engineered to ensure cochlear integrity and preserve residual hearing, FLEX electrode arrays are the most atraumatic electrode arrays available. Uniquely designed not to deviate into other scalae and ideal for both round window and cochleostomy surgical approaches, FLEX electrode arrays are recommended for safe electrode insertion to preserve natural cochlear structures.
