Hearing Impairment Clinical Trials

A listing of Hearing Impairment medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.


Found (58) clinical trials

The purpose of the study is to collect information related to hearing or other communication disorders of the ear, nose, mouth, & throat region. This information will be used to recruit participants into a variety of otolaryngology research studies at Washington University. Participation will include completing a 10 minute questionnaire. ...


Cochlear Implant Low Power Strategy

Reducing power consumption in the cochlear implant is crucial to the development of future smaller sound processors. The commercial MP3000 sound coding strategy has been shown to be more efficient in power consumption to the standard ACE strategy. However in order to develop smaller sound processors, further battery life power ...

Phase N/A

Quest Sound Recover (SR2) vs. Venture SR2

Goal of this study is to determine the benefit of an improved feature on a new hearing aid platform. To investigate the improvements of this feature is compared on a new and older hearing aid platform. The obtained results will be used for future improvement for this feature. This feature ...

Phase N/A

Cochlear Implant With Anti-Inflammatory Agent

In an effort to further preserve residual acoustic hearing after cochlear implantation, it may be beneficial to incorporate anti-inflammatory agents into the electrode array for passive elution over a time course after implantation. This study aims to assess the ease and effectiveness of such an electrode design, and to assess ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Evaluation of Bass and Treble Controls for CI Subjects

Bass and Treble controls provide the CI recipient with access to the adjustment of low and high frequency sound balance, known as Bass and Treble respectively. The clinical study is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of recipient controlled Bass and Treble. Subjects will have access to the Bass ...

Phase N/A

The Neuro Zti Cochlear Implant System Efficacy and Safety in Adults

The new cochlear implant system is indicated in individuals with serious hearing disabilities who do not obtain benefit from appropriately fitted hearing aid(s). Cochlear implant surgery is safe, but as with any surgery, possible issues or device related issues may occur. The risk benefit balance is well known in cochlear ...

Phase N/A

CHANGE Feasibility Study

The purpose of the feasibility study is to examine audiological outcomes (audiometry and speech perception) and safety (adverse events and adverse device effects) with the Nucleus CI532 cochlear implant in group of adult subjects (n=12) who meet current criteria for cochlear implantation.

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Efficacy of Opti-Speech for Speech Treatment

Participants will be asked to complete the Goldman Fristoe Test of Articulation along with several other assessment tests. Then speech treatment, guided by Opti-Speech, will be provided to the participant for up to 10 treatment sessions. The participant will be asked to come back after the final treatment for a ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Metrics for Assessing Cochlear Implant Recipient MAPs

Optimising the clinical fitting of a cochlear implant to an individual listener is an important aspect of post-operative clinical care. The level of success experienced by any individual with a cochlear implant can be influenced, to a significant extent, by the quality of the clinical programming by the audiologist. During ...

Phase N/A

Implantation of the HiRes90K Advantage Cochlear Implant With HiFocus Mid-Scala and Development of a Combined Electric and Acoustic Stimulation Technology in Adults With Partial Deafness

The purpose of this feasibility study is to evaluate whether low-frequency acoustic hearing sensitivity can be preserved in newly implanted adults with partial deafness (considerable low frequency acoustic hearing profiles with severe-to-profound high frequency sensorineural hearing loss) using the HiResolution 90K Advantage cochlear implant with the HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode to ...
