Cochlear Implants Benefits: Cochlear Implants Benefits Cochlear implants can help people who : Have severe to profound sensorineural (inner ear) hearing loss in both ears Receive no real hearing benefit from hearing aids Have poor speech recognition Children in particular stand to gain significant benefit in hearing performance as a result of the increased sound stimulation during the developmental "window" that occurs during early childhood How Cochlear Implant Works?: How Cochlear Implant Works? Here's how it works: An external sound processor captures sound and converts it into digital code The sound processor transmits the digitally-coded sound through the coil to the implant The implant converts the digitally coded sound into electrical impulses and sends them along the electrode array, which is positioned in the cochlea (inner ear) The implant's electrodes stimulate the cochlea's hearing nerve, which then sends the impulses to the brain where they are interpreted as sound.
