Advanced electrode capabilities

MED-EL is a leader in the cochlear implant industry due to its ability to produce a variety of ultra-soft and flexible electrode leads for maximum protection of the sensitive inner ear. The availability of different types of electrode leads allows surgeons to choose the optimal solution that best suits each person’s individual anatomical situation. The output of the MED-EL standard electrode is unique in that it is designed to be extremely long and flexible to reach the highest part (tip) of the cochlea to stimulate the maximum number of nerve fibers. As the electrode output is able to cover the entire length of the cochlea (full cochlear coverage), it facilitates the widest range of frequencies and results, providing the most satisfying hearing experience.
