Wow this is sooo cool!  We got to see OTOPLAN in the Med-El training lab and this HEARO robotic CI takes the individualized info from OTOPLAN to a whole new level.  Amazing!

Although this would not have been an option for my surgeries due to ossification of the round windows, it sure will be helpful to most people who have round window electrode array insertions.


Fascinating!  You can feel the excitement from the team members.  It radiates from their pictures!



Med-El is on a path for truly individualized cochlear implants!

-from the wide electrode array options plus the willingness to custom make electrodes for unique anatomy

-OTOPLAN software and tablet that takes our pre-surgical images and creates 3-D models of our very own cochleas so the surgeons can best select appropriate electrode arrays

-HEARO robotic cochlear implantation which uses the info from OTOPLAN to customize the exact surgical drilling and electrode array insertion angle.


Just amazing!
