The Codacs™ implant is an active medical device that mechanically stimulates the cochlea, bypassing the impaired middle and outer ear of persons with severe to profound mixed hearing loss. This pioneering acoustic implant meets the unmet needs of patients who:
1. Can’t wear hearing aids due to their anatomy;
2. Aren’t performing well with hearing aids; and/or
3. Have had failed middle ear surgery.
These patients typically have a reasonable portion of residual hearing. The Codacs System makes use of this portion of residual hearing to typically provide a richer and broader sound quality for the patient.
