A cochlear implant (CI) system helps to restore the sense of hearing for individuals with severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss. For individuals with this type of hearing loss, hearing aids provide little or no benefit.
A CI is the only medical device capable of replacing a sense. It works by bypassing non-functioning parts of the inner ear and providing electrical stimulation directly to nerve fibres in the cochlea. A CI system consists of two parts: an externally worn audio processor, which sits comfortably behind or off the ear, and an internal cochlear implant, which is surgically placed just under the skin.
