The Cochlear™ Carina® system offers a hearing solution for people who cannot wear hearing aids or are unsatisfied with their results.
The first step in determining whether someone can benefit from a Carina System is an audiological evaluation.
A person may be a candidate if he or she is suffering from a moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss or mixed hearing loss.
Adults and children
You can generally consider Carina implants for people who:
Have moderate-to-profound sensorineural or mixed hearing loss in one or both ears.
Cannot wear or do not get sufficient benefit from hearing aids or a Baha® system.
Have no medical contraindications.
The Carina implant is suitable for children aged 14 and over. There is no upper age limit for Carina implantation.
