Meet Georgia Purdham.

“I was ecstatic when I found out that there was a solution in the Hybrid for people like me that were sort of stuck between hearing aids and the cochlear implant.”

Georgia is a wife, mom, and works as a research scientist – and she lives with hearing loss. She started to feel frustrated and isolated. Her hearing loss left her unable to participate in conversations and interact with those she loved.

Spread the word and share on social media; let everyone know that this October is…

Improve Your Patient Counseling with Data Logging in the Nucleus 6 System

To date, cochlear implant fittings have been completed in the clinic and then after a period of real-world use, the recipient returns for re-fitting. At that time, audiologists rely on feedback from the recipient or parent/caregiver on how, where, and when the device was used. There is only so much that can be learned by asking a recipient about his/her hearing experiences. It can often be difficult for someone to remember their experiences day-to-day and over an extended period of several months. Even “good reporters” often fail to note many of the pertinent details that are needed to help improve…
