- A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that replaces the function of the damaged inner ear.
- Unlike hearing aids, which make sounds louder, cochlear implants bypass the damaged hair cells of the inner ear (cochlea) to provide sound signals to the brain.
- The cochlear implant technology can help people : 1) Who have severe to profound hearing loss in both ears. 2) Who receive little or no benefit from hearing aids. 3) Child born with severe to profound hearing loss.
