Improved electrode options
MED-EL is a leader in cochlear implants because of its ability to produce different types of ultra-soft and flexible electrode leads for maximum protection of the sensitive inner ear. The availability of different types of electrode leads allows surgeons to choose the optimal solution to best suit each individual’s anatomical situation. MED-EL’s standard electrode lead is unique in that it is designed to be extra long and flexible to reach the highest part of the cochlea (the apex) to stimulate the maximum number of nerve fibres. As the electrode output is able to cover the entire length of the cochlea (complete cochlear coverage), it facilitates the widest range of frequencies and results in the most stimulating and satisfying hearing experience.
