Advanced Bionics, LLC Key Developments

Advanced Bionics Receives CE Mark Approval for Cochlear Implant Use in Patients with Single-Sided Deafness

Advanced Bionics announced that the HiRes 90K Advantage cochlear implant, with the HiFocus 1J, HiFocus Helix, and HiFocus Mid-Scala electrodes, has received CE Mark approval from the European Notified Body, TÜV, to be implanted in patients with unilateral (asymmetric) hearing loss, also known as single-sided deafness (SSD). Three recent study reviews show that SSD patients with cochlear implants have improved sound localization abilities and better perception of speech in noise, two areas of considerable difficulty for people with unilateral hearing. Studies have also shown that SSD patients who did not benefit from other implantable options received significant benefit from cochlear implants. Advanced Bionics offers speech understanding solutions, including ClearVoice speech enhancement technology and UltraZoom, in the Naída CI family of sound processors. The combination of AB and Phonak technologies makes the Naída CI the most advanced sound processor available, offering high-performance hearing in all environments, 100% wireless connectivity to consumer electronics, and bimodal capabilities that allow streaming to the processor and a compatible Phonak hearing aid at the same time. The newest AB electrode array, the HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode, was designed for optimal placement in the cochlea with low insertion force to protect its delicate structures, and promotes the latest soft surgery approaches to suit surgeon preferences. As a result, the HiFocus Mid-Scala offers recipients the opportunity to hear the most pitches possible for enjoying music and improved speech understanding.

Advanced Bionics, LLC Receives Approval by the China State Food and Drug Administration for the Neptune Sound Processor

Advanced Bionics, LLC announced that it received approval by the China State Food and Drug Administration for the Neptune sound processor, the swimmable, waterproof cochlear implant sound processor, in China. Warranted for use in oceans, lakes and rivers in addition to pools, baths and showers, Neptune is designed to help cochlear implant recipients hear both in and out of the water. Recipients using other products on the market must enclose their processor in a bag or remove their processor when they swim or bathe, which means they can miss out on important safety instructions and opportunities for language development because they are not hearing at that time. Parents of pediatric Neptune recipients will appreciate the bonding and learning that comes with hearing during bath time, as well as the safety of hearing in pools, oceans, rivers and lakes. Designed after the chic styling of popular consumer electronics, the lightweight Neptune processor also features the industry's first freestyle design, allowing recipients to hear the world of sound with the comfort and beauty of nothing on the ear. As a testament to the polished styling, Neptune has been honored with a coveted Red Dot Award for Product Design from the German-based Red Dot Institute for Advanced Design Studies, and a Silver Shaggie award in recognition of excellence in product design from the Industrial Designers Society of America. The Neptune freestyle wearing category is new for the cochlear implant industry, giving recipients the ability to choose their wearing style. With the variety of convenient accessories, recipients can wear the Neptune processor anywhere and any way they choose, such as in the hair, on an arm, under a collar, in a pocket--a high level of flexibility not available in the market until now. Neptune also comes in a wide range of fashion-forward colors for matching it to wardrobes or showing it off. And for those who prefer a more discreet look, it can also be easily tucked away. Parents will appreciate the many features included to ensure that Neptune is the perfect choice for small children, including removable controls that make it tamper-proof so that children can always hear their best.

Advanced Bionics Launches Waterproof Case for Cochlear Implant Recipients

Advanced Bionics (AB) announced the approval of the AquaCase(TM) container in Europe and Canada. Designed for use with the Naída CI Q70 (Naída CI) sound processor, the AquaCase accessory is the world's first and only swimmable, waterproof case for cochlear implant recipients. From bath time, swimming and snorkeling, to skiing, trail hiking, mountain biking, mud running and rock climbing, the durable AquaCase offers recipients uncompromised hearing performance and peace of mind during even the most rugged adventures. To ensure it safeguards the Naída CI sound processor in any environment, the AquaCase features a security lock and special corrosion-resistant materials that stand up to water, dirt, mud, sand, and other grime. Recipients can wear it just how they like it with a compatible clip, armband, and lanyard.
