Iphone-Compatible Cochlear Implant Restores Hearing
It Is Controlled By A Smartphone App And Allows Hearing Music Or Conversations
New cochlear implant connects via Bluetooth with an iPhone to restore hearing. Unlike hearing aids, which amplify sounds, cochlear implants send sound directly to the auditory nerve. They are also implanted in the patient’s body, requiring surgery for its removal. This allows the use of an iPhone to listen to music or a conversation. The implant is controlled by an all that sets the volume and the type of hearing they require, based on the environmental sound. Apple has been offering Bluetooth licenses free of charge to several hearing aid and implant manufacturers. Click here for more info.
