Small microphone designed for the middle ear could make cochlear implants easier to wear.
Study shows children see increase in quality of life after receiving bilateral cochlear implants
Researchers have discovered that infrared light can cause the inner ear to send signals to the brain, which could mean improvements to cochlear implants in the future.
Cochlear Americas announces 2011 recipients of the Graeme Clark Scholarship.
A new study will investigate whether hybrid cochlear implants will help individuals with high-frequency hearing loss.
The UK’s first operation to fit a single cochlear implant capable of giving sound in both ears takes place at the South of England Cochlear Implant Centre (SOECIC), based at the University of Southampton. A cochlear implant is an electronic device that can help both adults and children who have a severe to profound hearing loss.
Children's Hearing Institute announced that The New York Eye & Ear Infirmary has been awarded a National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders grant to study how children with cochlear implants acquire language to improve and optimize therapies.
A new reports shows that poor children with hearing loss appear to have equal access to cochlear implants, but have more complications and worse compliance with follow-up regimens than children with higher socioeconomic status.
House Ear Institute (HEI) celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the first pediatric cochlear implant. HEI received FDA approval for a clinical trial in July 1980 to implant three patients under the age of 18 with the single-channel cochlear implant. The single-channel device had been developed at HEI by William House, M.D., in the 1960s and successfully implanted in adults.
Ear tubes to treat infections does not appear to adversely affect children with cochlear implants, regardless of whether the tubes are left in place or removed before implantation
New research reveal that older adults appear to benefit significantly from cochlear implants. Cochlear implants have become an accepted treatment for adults with age-related hearing loss or the progression of early-onset hearing loss.
Life-changing cochlear implant technology is now submersible in water for up to 30 minutes
Receiving a cochlear implant before 18 months of age dramatically improves a deaf child's ability to hear, understand and, eventually, speak, according to a multicenter study led by scientists at Johns Hopkins.
Although deaf children who receive cochlear implants appear more likely to fail early grades in school, they ultimately achieve educational and employment levels similar to their normal-hearing peers, according to a report in the April issue of Archives of Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery.
Five Recipients Receive Graeme Clark Cochlear Scholarship.
Researchers are working with an investigational device that will enable people who have lost hearing in both ears to still be able to process certain types of noise. The device bypasses structures within the ear and works by stimulating the brainstem, which sends a message to the brain that a noise has been "heard.”
A team of engineers from the CEIT-IK4 technological centre and doctors from the University Hospital of Navarra have designed a new tool for operating on the inner ear with maximum precision, reducing the possibility of damage to the auditory function during the surgery.
A growing body of evidence points to the importance of early auditory input for developing language skills. An Indiana University Department of Otolaryngology study found that deaf children's word-learning skills were strongly affected by their early auditory experience.
