As the recognised global leader and expert in the implantable hearing solutions industry, Cochlear is trusted by people in more than 100 countries around the world. We have direct operations in 20 countries and regional headquarters in Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas. Our dedicated global team has helped people of all ages either hear for the first time or reconnect to their families, friends, workplaces and communities.

Having played a leading role in the ground-breaking development of both cochlear implant and bone conduction technologies, innovation remains our strategic priority. We’ve delivered a number of world-first advances and continue to drive technologic innovation to improve the hearing outcomes of people of all ages with moderate to profound hearing loss. We can do this because we make the largest investment in research and development in our industry¹ - 13% of our global sales revenue in the 2011 financial year.  We also work with more than 100 research partners across 20 countries to continually improve the performance of our hearing solutions and support services.





Please seek advice from your health professional about treatments for hearing loss. Outcomes may vary, and your health professional will advise you about the factors which could affect your outcome. Always read the instructions for use. Not all products are available in all countries. Please contact your local Cochlear representative for product information.
