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.

RESULTS

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. ...

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

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

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 ...

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

Optimisation of Hybrid Fittings for Cochlear Implant Recipients

When providing amplification post-implantation to residual acoustic hearing in the implanted ear, the lower frequency boundary can be modified to minimize or avoid overlap between the frequencies coded through acoustic hearing and those presented through electrical stimulation. This boundary is termed the cross-over frequency (Fc) and the effect of modifying ...

Phase N/A

Benefits of the HiResolution Bionic Ear System in Adults With Asymmetric Hearing Loss

The purpose of this feasibility study is to evaluate the benefit of unilateral implantation in adults who have severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss in one ear, and up to moderate sensorineural hearing loss in the other ear (asymmetric hearing loss).

Phase N/A

Intracochlear Potentials: Volta Study

The clinical investigation will gather impedance and transimpedance (voltage tomography) data intraoperatively and post-operatively which can be used to characterize the electrical properties of the living cochlea. The Surgical Assistant Research Tool (SA16) research software is a software tool developed by Cochlear Limited. The use of the SA16 research software ...

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 ...
