Advanced Bionics Cochlear Implant Systems
A Cochlear Implant System consists of the Implant, the part which is implanted just under the skin behind the ear and the Sound Processor, which is worn very much like a hearing aid with a headpiece which connects to the implant. Some benefits and featuresare specific to either (the implant or the sound processor), but both work together in the application of the core technologies.
|Stimulation Rate||Up to 83,000pps|
|Uncompressed Input dynamic Range||Up to 80 dB|
|Spectral Bands/Channels||Up to 120|
|Sound Coding Strategies||CIS, MPS, MiRes-P/S, HiRes-F120-P/S, ClearVoice, HiRes Optima|
All Advanced Bionics Cochlear Implants provide identical features and benefits however the delivery system, the electrode array, differs according to your preference and medical necessity. The electrode array is the part,once inserted into your cochlear, which will electrically stimulate your hearing nerve.
