  1. Ok, thanks, I am a bit more assured now. But what about my original question. Is it possible a minor head trauma, like a small child falling on his head when still learning to walk, can cause an electrode slipping?
  2. Oh, this sounds awful, slipping even without trauma...I can only guess what happens to the electrodes if there is a head trauma. And only way to find this out is with a CT scan I guess?
  3. I am trying to find info on how "stable" the electrodes are within the cochlea? Lets assume a child faces head traume, but not directly in the position of the implant, somewhere else. Lets assume he/shel fall on the back. Can impact forces be so big that they "move" the position of the electrode within the cochlea? Everything I read on the internet is about direct trauma to the electrode casing, which can result failure. Nothing about what I am seeking.
  4. This is one of the good things I hope will happen to my child once he become a teen. The ability to stream music directly into his CI making it impossible (I hope?) to turn the volume too high.
  5. Interesting decision being from a country where Cochlear ltd came from
  6. For my child, i would prefer somekinda tracking method via BT. And also to send information to phone or other compatible device with CI status, like a warning beep if coil disconnects. As I parent I just dont want to monitor my child all the time. Not that I would not want to, I just want to give him freedom. That is during his early years, once he is old enough to get his own phone and really knows what the CI is there for, he can take care of it on his own.
  7. As a soon to be parent of a child with CI I am trying to plan ahead. Most likely active children loose their CI BTEs quite often. What to do to prevent this and also to find it easier? I was thinking of RFID, BT tracking devices, like this guy: https://eresope.wordpress.com/2017/03/21/tracking-and-locating-lost-cochlear-implants/ But as written in the artice, there is actually no smart way of doing this. Im quite surprised none of the manufs actually implemented a solution with a proper tracking technology, not mechanical solutions like wires, etc.
  8. So, purely hypothetical, lets assume someone gets implanted who have somekinda hearing left. How does it work then, is the "ear" mechanism fully instact after implating so it still works and its the implant that takes over the signaling part as it is prolly stronger? Will such person still be able to hear with the BTE unit off?
  9. What do you mean "with less as possible help from a side"?
  10. Yes, doc. Rebol. We are planned for April if possible
  11. Yes, Maribor, do you have any comment on that, positive or negative?
  12. You linked a website saying: SYNCHRONY is also the smallest and lightest implant available today. This can be particularly important when implanting babies and young children. Thats why i asked if it isnt the CI532 which is even smaller and lighter. The electrode, not the implant.
