The Hybrid™ Cochlear Implant – Half hearing aid, half bionic ear
When your hearing is reasonable in the lower tones but poor in the higher tones, you may be a candidate for the Hybrid™ Cochlear implant.
This is a hearing device that is half hearing aid (to help with low frequency hearing) and half Cochlear implant (to help with high frequency hearing loss).
Your Northside Audiology implant audiologist will determine which type of hearing aid implant is best for your hearing loss. Like a full Cochlear implant, the cost of the Hybrid™ Cochlear implant is fully covered by your private health fund. You can see some results in the video below.
