Cochlear Implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that helps provide hearing to a person with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. This sensorineural hearing loss is caused by damage or a defect in the inner ear. Cochlear implants bypass damaged hair cells in the inner ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve to send information to the brain.
Cochlear implants provide a better hearing for adults and children with profound hearing loss. They are designed for people whose hearing does not improve with other surgical procedures or with use of a hearing aid.
In our country, cost factor is the most important problem which does not allow the needy or ideal patient to undergo such surgery frequently, multichannel cochlear implant cost several lakhs, and seem beyond the reach of average Indian patients.
We are hoping to provide Cochlear implants at affordable price to the needy.
