Advanced Bionics Announces HiRes' Auria' Processor Approved by FDA and Health Canada

Valencia, CA, July 16, 2003 - Advanced Bionics announces that the new HiRes' Auria' - a new ear-level processor for the HiResolution' Bionic Ear System - has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada.

The new Auria processor combines the benefits of HiResolution' Sound (HiRes') with style and flexibility to meet patients listening and lifestyle needs. When configured with new rechargeable PowerCel technology, the Auria is a classy behind-the-ear model that is just right for teens and adults. When customized with an AA PowerPak, the Auria transforms into an ultra light configuration that is ideal for children and provides access to both rechargeable and disposable AA batteries that run for more than a full day.

The Auria is available in three attractive base colors (Silver, Beige Metallic and Dark Sienna). Auria users can accent their mood or style with 20 different accent colors and graphics, which look great on the processor and low profile headpiece.

While attractive ear-level processors are important to cochlear implant users, sound quality and clarity are paramount. The Auria processor is a full capability processor that does not require sacrifices in processing performance. The Auria processor can run the industry-leading CII Bionic Ear implant electronics at maximum speed using maximum channels for high resolution sound.

BionicEar.com now includes additional information on this new advanced sound processor technology, where one can interactively build their own Auria processor and view 3D photography of the Auria processor and low profile headpiece. Additional information on availability and North American release plans are also available at BionicEar.com.

Advanced Bionics is the leading innovator of cochlear implants with more U.S. technology patents than all other cochlear implant manufacturers combined. Imagine the Possibilities'.
