There is a large and growing body of research highlighting the progress of cochlear implantation. To demonstrate the evolution of this life-changing technology, we are featuring five important trends in cochlear implantation.

  1. Cochlear implant candidacy has expanded
    Single Sided Deafness
    Hearing Loss with Other Medical Issues
  2. Cochlear implants now allow retention of significant amounts of residual hearing
    Electrical Acoustic Stimulation (EAS)
  3. Binaural/bimodal hearing provides important benefits
    Binaural/Bimodal Fittings
  4. Early is better
    Early Implantation in Children
    Outcomes in Older Adults
  5. Connecting with other technologies enhances outcomes
    Improving Challenging Listening Environments
    Advancements in Technology and Programming 
The mission of the American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is to advance access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy and awareness.
