Bimodal hearing care from cochlea implant system Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 and hearing aid ReSound LiNX Quattro™
The combination of two medical products offers hearing-impaired people who hear with cochlear implant (CI) and hearing aid (over 50% of CI users) audiological quality and novel connectivity – for the first time with direct, bimodal sound streaming from iOS mobile devices to one ear that is electrically stimulated with CI and one ear that is acoustically amplified with a hearing aid. Music, announcements, phone calls – everything is transmitted synchronously. Accessories are for TV, smartphones, etc.
With a synergy of two systems, “Bimodal hearing care” demonstrates perfectly the impact technology can have in a relevant area within society. The product helps hearing-impaired people lead an active life and has the potential to facilitate interpersonal relationships. The solution is the result of the collaborative effort of two companies that have successfully combined their respective individual systems into a solution that offers an immense additional value for a steadily growing user group.
