When you choose AB, you benefit from world-class reliability. This means less hearing downtime, so you hear your best day-in and day-out without interruption.

There are two important aspects to consider when choosing a cochlear implant – the system itself, and the support you will receive throughout your lifetime.


The Implant
Implant technology is the most important consideration in a cochlear implant system. This will determine how much detailed sound information is ultimately delivered to the hearing nerve.

  • Has the industry’s highest reliability rating
  • Has the industry’s highest impact resistance (can withstand 6 Joules impact to the head)
  • Is compatible with future technology – fully upgradeable without the need for additional surgery
  • Has the industry’s highest number of independent current sources for precise current steering to improve pitch perception
  • Has the industry’s smallest pre-curved array with low-profile, surgery-friendly design for less intrusive implantation
  • Causes minimal damage to the cochlea and preserves any remaining hearing
