Implants Give Perception of Hearing

Implant devices can give ‘perception’ of hearing to deaf, severely hearing-impaired clearly explains how implants work and what people implanted with these devices hear. Many ask me how I am doing with the implant. I know they’re interested and all, but it just not going to change for a long, long time. I have 30 years of a lipreading habit to change. An implant doesn’t make words come through much clearer than my hearing aids.

    Thanks for the link. I’ve recently started thinking about getting a CI, but I was mostly interested in being able to hear instead of lip-reading… doesn’t sound like there are miracle cures!

  1. As far as I know, the implants are the most effective at young age (usually the surgeries are made at the age of 2 when parents realize that their child is deaf)… Or they are quite effective wneh the person lost hearing when being an adult.

  2. Apart from device funcitonalities it is also how the person trains oneself to use the methods effectively no matter how sophisticated the implant technology is.
