Abstract

Hearing implants are an important devices for combating deafness over the next 15 years. In this paper, we focus on the means to determine the sensitivity of the hearing organ to disturbances produced by implants and other interventions, and those induced by implantation. The preservation of residual hearing is an important aspect to be considered, however, the sensitivity of this to the process of implantation, device location and power levels is not well understood. Within this paper, a new experimental set-up to contrast the merits of different implantation techniques, implant location and power transmission are discussed and the initial results regarding disturbance levels using different surgical techniques are described.
