The Power of Two
MED-EL is excited to announce that the new SYNCHRONY EAS Hearing Implant System will be available beginning Monday, December 5, 2016. Below are the SYNCHRONY EAS System brochure and updated SYNCHRONY/PIN Surgical Guidelines.
The SYNCHRONY EAS System consists of the SONNET EAS Audio Processor and the SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant. EAS, or Electric Acoustic Stimulation, is the combination of two types of technology. The system uses a cochlear implant to electrically stimulate the high frequencies and an acoustic unit to amplify the low frequencies. EAS is designed specifically for candidates with high-frequency hearing loss, but who also have existing low-frequency hearing levels they might be afraid to lose. Candidates with this type of hearing loss often use hearing aids but have difficulty understanding speech in background noise. The EAS clinical study showed that 92% of participants reported an improvement in their ability to hear in background noise.
The SYNCHRONY EAS System utilizes MED-EL’s unique electrode design, which features flexible wave-shaped wires specifically built to protect cochlear integrity.* Additionally, the SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant remains the only cochlear implant approved for 3.0 Tesla MRI scans without magnet removal.
Additionally, the SONNET Microphone Test Device Adapter is now available and will be added to pediatric patient kits beginning December 5, 2016. This adapter should be used with the Microphone Test Device when evaluating the SONNET Audio Processor microphone.
