Who might benefit?

People of any age who are deaf or hard of hearing may benefit from implantable technology if they find limited benefit from conventional hearing aids and are motivated to improve their hearing.
With their hearing difficulties they may be experiencing some of the following:  

  • Struggle hearing in noisy places
  • Experience reduced speech clarity
  • Rely on lipreading
  • Ask for a lot of repeats
  • Have difficulty using the phone
  • Rely on subtitles when watching TV
  • Avoid social outings because of the impact of the hearing loss.
