Electro-Acoustic Hearing Implant

What are Electro-Acoustic Hearing Implants?

Electro-Acoustic Hearing Implant is a system that combines electric stimulation (cochlear implant) and acoustic amplification (hearing aid).

It is considered an option for patients with high frequency hearing loss who do not benefit from traditional hearing aids alone.

The acoustic component amplifies the preserved low frequency sounds and the electrical component converts high frequency signals into electrical energy, stimulating the hearing nerve.
