Bionic Hearing: Understanding Cochlear Implant Technology
While most individuals with hearing loss find benefit through hearing aids, a subset of people with severe to profound hearing loss require surgically implanted devices called cochlear implants. A cochlear implant is a medical device embedded in the inner ear that stimulates the auditory nerve. This presentation will cover the basics of how cochlear implants work and issues regarding candidacy. All ears are welcome to attend.
Screenings are for individuals who have not been diagnosed with hearing loss.
Free of charge.
