Outcome Prediction in Cochlear Implant Recipients

The ability to predict post-operative outcomes after implantation is important for a number of reasons, including being able to advise candidates of appropriate expectations using evidence based guidance. The approved study involves investigation of the ability to predict outcomes in the implanted ear alone and in the best-aided binaural listening ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
