Cochlear Faces $131.2 Million Damages from US Law Suit
Jan 24 14
Cochlear Ltd. has announced that a jury in the US District Court in Los Angeles has found direct, contributory and willful, but not induced infringement against Cochlear and its US subsidiary Cochlear Americas. Damages of $131.2 million have been awarded against Cochlear. No judgment has been entered based on the verdict as important issues still remain to be decided by the Judge. These decisions may negate some of the findings of the jury and could alter the damages awarded by the jury. Cochlear believes the facts and the law do not support the jury's findings and will seek to overturn the verdict in post-trial motions with the District Court and, if necessary, through the appeals process. The verdict relates to two US patents on testing systems and methods for a cochlear implant.
Cochlear Americas Receives FDA Approval for the First and Only Ear Level Accessory for Waterproof Hearing with Cochlear Implants
May 31 13
Cochlear Americas announced that the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a one-of-a-kind Aqua Accessory compatible with the Cochlear Nucleus 5 Sound Processor. The Aqua Accessory is a custom cover with a double zip lock seal designed to hold the processor and coil inside, and can be worn behind the ear in the normal position. It is designed to be used in any water based activities to a depth of four meters for up to one hour. The Aqua Accessory is a simple solution for protecting sophisticated cochlear implant technology from water damage. It is designed to provide more underwater options for people that currently use a Nucleus 5 Sound Processor, which already has the high level of water resistance for an ear level device. Prior to the availability of the Aqua Accessory, people using the Nucleus 5 Sound Processor could be in and around water, but could not swim under water. However, now people have the ability to swim worry-free in chlorinated pools, partial salt water/chlorinated pools, saltwater, soapy and fresh water. With the new Aqua Accessory, an IP68 waterproof rating is achieved without the need to purchase an additional sound processor for swimming, and it is quick and easy to put on and take off during normal water activities. The Aqua Accessory can be pre-ordered from the Cochlear Americas store in packs of 5, 15 and 30 for a low cost. The Aqua Accessory is also available in Latin America and Canada.
