MED−EL has a strong tradition of advancing the technological and scientific foundation in the field of hearing implants. The company’s strong and consistent focus on research and development will continue to fuel the pipeline of new ideas and innovations.
Our broad portfolio of products ensures that we can provide a hearing implant solution to fit each candidate’s unique hearing loss. MED−EL was there at the beginning and they will be there for you today, tomorrow and in the future offering state−of−the−art hearing solutions that are comfortable to wear and easy to use.
Engineered for best parallel processing precision and performance, the exceptionally small-volume and thin SONATATI100 titanium implant from MED-EL is the most advanced titanium implant on the market. The energy-efficient SONATA is also extremely durable. With over a 99% reliability rating, the SONATA delivers peace of mind along with future readiness. SONATA is embedded with additional capabilities that are currently untapped. The capabilities are designed to be utilised in conjunction with future software or audio processor upgrades. This makes SONATA the ideal implant choice for both today and the future.
The new CONCERTO Cochlear Implant from MED-EL is the industry’s smallest CI available with titanium housing. With the same footprint, it is 25% thinner than the SONATA titanium implant. The thinner, stronger CONCERTO titanium implant is optimised for minimally invasive surgical techniques. The particularly small dimensions make it the ideal choice for children and adults of all ages. CONCERTO is offered with a variety of the softest and most flexible electrode arrays ever produced for preservation of the delicate neural structures of the cochlea.
The SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant System combines a number of powerful technologies to provide our recipients with the most natural hearing possible. With Triformance, Automatic Sound Management 2.0, the most comprehensive portfolio of electrodes, and 3.0 T MRI safety without magnet removal, SYNCHRONY delivers superior performance in sync with natural hearing

The new standard in middle ear implants
The SOUNDBRIDGE, a unique middle ear implant system, has opened a world of new hearing possibilities for individuals who have not experienced an improvement with conventional hearing aids or cannot use them for medical reasons . This is often the case with permanent hearing loss after middle ear surgery or when hearing aids cannot be worn due to chronic ear canal inflammation (i.e., otitis externa). The SOUNDBRIDGE can be an effective solution for cases of mild to severe sensorineural hearing loss, as well as for conductive or mixed hearing loss.
In contrast to a hearing aid - which can only make sounds entering the ear canal louder - the SOUNDBRIDGE converts the signals from the environment into mechanical vibrations. This mechanical energy directly stimulates the structures of the middle ear and allows even high-pitched tones to be perceived exceptionally well.

The audio processor - design meets technology
The SAMBA is the latest generation of audio processor for the SOUNDBRIDGE and BONEBRIDGE. The SAMBA does what its name suggests: it’s colourful, versatile and brings sound and joy to your life. With the interchangeable covers of the SAMBA audio processor it's your choice whether to hide the audio processor underneath your hair or make an expressive individual statement. For its innovative design, the SAMBA won the renowned Red Dot Design Award 2014. Along with the stunning design, the SAMBA impresses with sophisticated hearing technology.
The BONEBRIDGE, the world's first active bone conduction implant system, can be an effective solution for individuals with lasting hearing loss following a middle ear operation, malformations, or generally for conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. It is also an option for individuals with single-sided deafness.
With conductive or mixed hearing loss, sound cannot take the natural path through the outer and middle ear to the inner ear. With the BONEBRIDGE, the sound waves are transmitted via bone conduction directly to the inner ear, where they are processed as natural sound. The BONEBRIDGE ensures optimal daily hearing performance while remaining discreet and unobtrusive.
