What are cochlear implants? What can they do for people with hearing loss who cannot benefit from hearing aids? Does everyone who receives a cochlear implant have the same outcome? These questions are answered in Bridge to Sound with a 'Bionic' Ear, a book whose time has come. As more and more people turn to cochlear implants to give them the ability to hear within their families, their jobs, and their communities, this is the all-in-one resource to turn to for everything you want to know about cochlear implants. You will hear the voices of implants users and their families, from children to senior citizens, all of whom tell their own highly individual, emotional story about how their lives were affected after getting a cochlear implant. Bridge to Sound with a 'Bionic' Ear should be on the bookshelf of everyone with an interest in hearing loss and cochlear implants.

In addition, you'll learn about:


Hearing loss statistics
What a cochlear implant is and how it works
Criteria for becoming a candidate for an implant
What happens after activation of the device
Manufacturers of cochlear implants with a list of implant centers
Organizations to turn to for information and support
Websites about hearing loss and cochlear implants
Recent medical studies pertaining to cochlear implants and more.

Compiled by Cynthia Farley, who has had her cochlear implant since 1995, and is the founder of "Hear This Organization", a nonprofit entity dedicated to increasing public awareness of issues relating to hearing loss. A portion of all profits from sales of this book will be donated to nonprofits in the hearing health field. Cynthia resides with her husband Doug and son Zachary in Minnetonka Beach, Minnesota.
