Brand Comparison Chart

January 16th, 2011 by | Tags: , , , | 5 Comments »

Due to getting several e-mail requests for a brand comparison chart on three cochlear implant manufactures, Advanced Bionics, Cochlear™ and MED-EL, we created a brand comparison chart for you to use at your own discretion.  We still recommend consulting with the CI manufacturing companies, surgeons and audiologists, to get more information.  Please also note that this brand comparison chart is NOT affiliated with Advanced Bionics, Cochlear™, or MED-EL

The magnets on our AB coil don’t work like that – they are what you have listed under MedEl. Any chance those 2 were switched?

Hey Monica,

Thank you for letting us know. Elizabeth is calling AB to get the correct information on the magnets with the coils. We’ll have it fixed as soon as we can.

Also, AB has several other speech processing choices that you have not listed.

I think it would be appropriate to mention that Cochlear is the only brand that has been fined by the FDA for improper practices (kickbacks to audiologists).
