For sixteen years, Cochlear has offered perimodiolar electrodes because of:
- Atraumatic stimulation of the ‘hearing zone’ 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
- Precise stimulation 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19
- Near zero insertion forces 20
The ‘ideal’ electrode has to be as atraumatic as possible, capable of retaining residual hearing and also be able to preserve the delicate structure of the inner ear.
It has to be as close as possible to the modiolus to deliver precise stimulation, adapt to the length of the cochlea and be as thin as possible.
Following independent studies and surgeon recommendations, we have designed an electrode that makes a difference for patients.
