An option to hearing aids
Hearing aids don't work for everyone. Some people find them uncomfortable or simply too much hassle.
Others feel hearing aids restrict them from doing the things they love or they don't like wearing something that discloses their hearing loss.
If any of that sounds like you, a middle ear implant may be the answer.
Who do middle ear implants help?
These implants suit adults or children with moderate to severe sensorineural or mixed hearing loss who want a hearing solution that is invisible and always switched on.
Because everything is hidden under the skin, people can't see a middle ear implant. Nor can it ever be lost. You don't need to take it off to have a shower, go swimming or go to bed, so you are always connected to a world of sound.
How do middle ear implants work?
Middle ear implants like the Cochlear™ Carina® System attach directly to the structures of the middle ear, so you hear sound in a natural way.
