  • person's
  • Complicating the challenge is that each person's anatomical structure varies and thus every implant must be programmed-commonly termed as "mapped"-in a comprehensive, time-consuming process postoperatively. (innovations-report.com)
  • A world-first study has found that lip-reading may have a beneficial effect on the brain and on a person's ability to hear with a cochlear implant, contrary to what was previously believed. (medicalxpress.com)
  • middle ear
  • The researchers design exploits the mechanism of a different type of medical device, known as a middle-ear implant. (nanowerk.com)
  • A middle-ear implant consists of a tiny sensor that detects the ossicles vibrations and an actuator that helps drive the stapes accordingly. (nanowerk.com)
  • researchers
  • Researchers at MIT s Microsystems Technology Laboratory (MTL), together with physicians from Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI), have developed a new, low-power signal-processing chip that could lead to a cochlear implant that requires no external hardware.

  • Researchers are attempting to re-engineer and simplify music to be more enjoyable for people with cochlear implants. (neurosciencenews.com)
  • sound
  • Using Vanderbilt's patent-pending nonsurgical process, audiologists are able to fine-tune and customize cochlear implant programming, providing improved sound quality and clarity. (innovations-report.com)
  • Some children may find that the sound provided by a cochlear implant enhances their speechreading ability or makes them more aware of environmental sounds, while others can understand a great deal of speech through listening alone. (asha.org)
