The Acclaim® novel sensor technology is designed to leverage the natural anatomy of the ear rather than a microphone to capture sound entering the ear. The sound vibrations are intended to be processed into customized electronic signals. Then, the stimulator is intended to send unique electrical signals to stimulate the cochlea and hearing nerve to receive sounds.
Designed to function in environments not ideally suited for external components
Designed to use implanted rechargeable battery intended to last several days between charges
Designed without an external artificial microphone. The device is intended to allow the ear to pick up the sound naturally.
NOTE: Video is silent
