Interesting different type of middle ear implant but with CI method and no mic to boot.. totally implantable. so that means the internal device is little big than those other three major CI brands due to internal battery power (4 yrs)

you can see video via their website to see the device. of course no caption but require Flash plugins to view it.

Hi Boult,

I also wear hearing aids and have an 80% hearing loss, are your hearing aids digital?
