World's thinnest implant: Cochlear™ Nucleus® Profile™ Implant
The Nucleus Profile Series implants are the thinnest in the world.*
They are designed with a flexible coil to better fit the natural shape of your head.
Industry-leading design for hearing performance
The anatomy of the cochlea varies from person to person. That's why we offer a range of electrode shapes and lengths. Your surgeon will decide which one is best for you.
Unique features of Cochlear's electrodes and implants include:
22 active contacts for maximum frequency coverage along the hearing nerve.
The world's thinnest full-length electrode.
Electrodes which sit closest to the hearing nerve for your best hearing performance.1,2
Best long-term implant reliability record in the industry.*3
Electrode placement critical to hearing performance
Cochlear™ electrodes are designed to be placed where the hearing nerve stimulation is most effective and where they expect that you may benefit from the full range of sound.
This area is known as the hearing zone. It is the area closest to the hearing nerve, the target of electrical stimulation.4
Correct insertion depth helps to give you the full spectrum of sound and a richer hearing experience.
