Cochlear implants are becoming incredibly common among the hearing impaired. Due to the small size and high quality of these devices they have really become the most common hearing improvement method available. Fortunately this week a company came out with a design that will significantly improve the quality of Cochlear implants while also reducing their size.
The biggest improvement of the new design is the appearance. Many people are hesitant to get Cochlear implants due to the externally exposed microphone but this new design will entirely eliminate that. The proposed solution would move the microphone, battery, and everything else into a hidden inner ear location which would greatly improve the reception as well as the appearance of the device.
Medical experts and doctors around the world say this will truly be the future of hearing improvements if it works as planned. The price is expected to go down, the device is going to be significantly smaller, and in nearly every way it will be superior. Millions of hearing impaired people are hopeful that this is going to be the future because it will finally free them from the larger implants they currently have to deal with and that is obviously great news.
This is also great news for anyone that simply suffers from hearing loss due to old age. Cochlear implants were generally reserved for those affected by some sort of disability but this new design will likely bring the smaller Cochlear implants to millions more people that will benefit greatly from them.
