Cochlear nucleus 6 system is simply smarter in each listening situation a pioneering cochlear implant system presented cochlear, world leader in implantable hearing solutions, within the framework of the 58th international Congress of the European Union of the Acousticians (EUHA) in Nuremberg (16th to 18th October). The cochlear nucleus 6 system is the first CI system, which automatically adapts to each new listening environment of the wearer. This has the possibility to choose between two different sound processors including the smallest solution available currently on the market. Also new is the integrated hybrid functionality for optimal support of the remaining residual hearing after the surgery. Several control options, as well as a novel nano-coating ensure ease of use and reliable functioning. The extremely powerful, new microchip allows the connection of a number of wireless components among other things in the future. Heart of the nucleus is a new 6 system specially developed chip, which is five times as powerful as the currently market-leading nucleus 5 system”, explains Frederec Marketing Director of cochlear Germany LAU.
This enormous increase in performance iQ, the world’s most intelligent, fully automated signal processing system within the CI sector enables the integration of SmartSound. If language in a quiet environment or in a noisy environment, whether iQ recognizes any situation interfering wind noise or music SmartSound adjusts automatically and thus helps the CI-carrier to the respective optimum speech intelligibility and listeners life.” Two sound processor models, integrated hybrid functionality and control options for the first time have carrier cochlear implant systems the possibility to choose between two alternative sound processors: the nucleus CP920 is the smallest sound processor available on the market. the nucleus CP910 has an accessory port. Both processors with one be spread at a later date range of Wireless audio accessories allow to connect. Each sound processor also has a built-in hybrid functionality.
