Valencia, Calif. (PRWEB) December 9, 2009 -- Advanced Bionics® (http://www.advancedbionics.com), the only U.S.-based manufacturer of cochlear implants (or “bionic ears”), recently announced that the look of the world’s best performing cochlear implant system can now showcase customized designs. AB has partnered with Skinit, the leading company in consumer electronics personalization, to offer custom-made covers for Harmony® or Auria® sound processors.
“As a company, we focus on offering the most advanced technology and the best possible hearing experience to our recipients,” said Jeffrey H. Greiner, CEO of Advanced Bionics. “We’re excited to now offer far more customization options than any other cochlear implant manufacturer.”
With Skinit designs, recipients can customize their sound processors to match their mood or wardrobe or to simply make a fashion statement. Processors can be dressed with favorite colors, sports teams, motifs, or works of art. From patriotic flags to popular movie characters, from leopard prints to college team logos—and nearly everything in between—the Skinit website offers hundreds of designs to choose from or the option to upload graphics for a completely unique look. The designs are a great new addition to the 20 colorful caps and covers that are already available to choose from AB, making the Harmony System more customizable than any other cochlear implant system.
Harmony features the world’s most sophisticated technology to bring clearer, high-resolution sound to the severely-to-profoundly deaf. While most cochlear implants on the market were designed to perform best in quiet, clinic-like conditions, Harmony is designed to help recipients hear well in everyday settings like busy offices, noisy classrooms, and bustling restaurants. The Harmony System is designed to fit a cochlear implant recipient’s life and now their style, too.
