The technology inside a cochlear implant can make all the difference in a child’s development.
MED-EL’s SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant is the only CI on the market that enables 1.5 and 3.0 Tesla MRI scans without the need for additional surgeries to remove the implant magnet. Additionally, only MED-EL implants are powered by Triformance and feature Complete Cochlear Coverage, allowing children to hear the most natural range of sounds thanks to flexible electrodes that cover the entire cochlea.
