Cochlear Implant Devices

Compensation for Defective Hearing Device Implants

A cochlear implant is a complex hearing device, manufactured by Advanced Bionics and other companies, for people with extreme forms of sensorineural hearing loss. Although it does not perfect hearing or restore it to its original quality, it transfers sounds into electrodes that the brain can decipher to simulate hearing and aid profoundly deaf patients with hearing environmental sounds and deciphering human speech in noisier environments. While the upside seems very positive in successful cochlear implant cases, there have been many instances of serious problems emerging from their use.

One of the most prevalent manufacturers of cochlear implants is Advanced Bionics. This company has a history of problems with its cochlear implants, including two incidents, in 2004 and 2006, in which Advanced Bionics issued letters to inform customers about dangers in the products they had installed.
