Addressing Barriers to Adult Hearing Healthcare

Age-related hearing loss is the third-most common chronic condition affecting older adults in the US (data from Healthy People 2020 US Dept of Health and Human Services). This study aims to improve the understanding of attitudes, barriers and facilitators needed to improve hearing health care delivery. Two study cohorts of …

Phase N/A

Music Appreciation After Cochlear Implantation

Cochlear implants are medical devices that restore a remarkable degree of hearing to people who would otherwise be profoundly deaf. These devices generally restore enough hearing that recipients can understand spoken speech even in noisy environments. However, most recipients express dissatisfaction with music. This proposal centers on understanding the challenges …

Phase N/A

Localization and Mismatch Negativity

Sound localization is the primary function of binaural hearing and facilitates speech recognition in noise. In case of unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss, speech recognition in noise requires a constant adaptation of the head position to compensate for deafness. There is a significant impact of these deficits for socio-professional integration …

Phase N/A

Restauration of the Auditory and Cognitive Functions in Cochlear Implanted Deaf Children in fNIRS

When confronted with a severe to profound congenital bilateral hearing loss, cochlear implantation is considered to be the preferential treatment method as it restaures auditory function and enables language acquisition for communication purposes. When cochlear implantation is done before 2 and a half years old, better results are obtained in …

Benefits of Tablet-based Serious Games to Promote Speech Production in Young Children With Hearing Disabilities

Learning to speak is a major challenge for children with hearing impairments. Nowadays, special devices such as conventional hearing aids, bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA) or cochlear implants (CI) allow successful rehabilitation of patients with hearing disabilities. To obtain maximum benefit from these technical aids, instrumented hearing impaired children require specific …

Phase N/A

Esteem New Subject Enrollment Post Approval Study

Purpose To evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of the Esteem Totally Implantable Hearing System (hereafter called Esteem) in subjects suffering from moderate to severe hearing loss. Questions The following questions are to be answered: Is Esteem effective through 1 year follow-up? Is Esteem safe through 1 year follow-up? Is …

Phase N/A

CROS Application in CI

Bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss (PSNHL) is often treated with Cochlear Implants. The majority of bilaterally deafened patients, however, often only receive a unilateral cochlear implant (CI), with resultant limitations related to monaural listening. For unilateral CI users, the deficits inherently associated with monaural listening remain despite the considerable benefits …

Phase N/A

Development of a Robotic Minimally Invasive Pathway for Cochlear Implantation

The ROSA robot coupled to the O-Arm scanner will guide the milling to the round window, whose path has been previously modeled, with the identification of the facial nerve. Milling will be done in 2 stages with a CT (computerised tomography scan) and electromyographic verification of the facial nerve. The …

Phase N/A

Aural Rehabilitation for Cochlear Implant Users Via Telerehab Technology

Aural rehabilitation training (AR) has been demonstrated to improve outcomes for adult cochlear implant users. There are both financial and non-financial barriers to AR service delivery including accessibility (mobility, distance and transportation problems), accommodation (time off work impossible, caring for family) and availability (limited providers in rural areas, financial constraints, …

Phase N/A

Dexamethasone-Eluting Cochlear Implant Electrode

The principal objective of this study is to exploratively investigate the safety profile of the device which will be evaluated through the analysis of adverse events during the follow-up period. For the study to be considered a success, the results of the adverse event analysis shall never cause an unbalanced …
