“I decided to participate in [a] research study because I wanted to be able to help others to first make the decision to have the cochlear [implant] and also to let others know that it can make a big, big difference in theirAdult Cochlear Implant Research participant lives. I also think that being in this study has helped me personally as well because I believe I am being thoroughly tested and treated at every angle so that others can be helped.

The implant has made such a big difference in my quality of life. Being able to hear so much better has made me and my husband, family, and friends much happier. I am hearing things that I haven’t heard in a long, long time.” – Adult clinical research participant
