About the product
Neuro 2 is a cochlear implant developed for people with severe hearing loss. It is an electronic medical device that works by converting acoustic sound into electrical signals that is sent directly to the auditory nerve.
Conventional hearing aids capture sound, amplify it, and then transmit the sound into the ear canal. There are also implants that transmit sound waves through the skull (bone anchored) to the inner ear (a solution that Cochlear, among others, develops).
But if the hearing loss is too severe, the amplified sound does not help through a hearing aid or through the skull. Instead, a cochlear implant sends the audio signal directly to the auditory nerve. This means that, unlike conventional hearing aids, a cochlear implant can bypass the damaged parts of the hearing organ. The implant captures the sound, processes it and then stimulates the auditory nerve through electrical impulses.
Neuro 2 is the smallest BTE audio processor ever manufactured for a cochlear implant. Its design has already been awarded a number of prestigious awards.
Just like conventional hearing aids, you can stream audio wirelessly from any type of electronic device, such as your phone or TV. The hearing aid also has the highest rating for cochlear implants against water and dust (IP68), which e.g. means you can take a shower with it.
