at the 17th International Conference on Cochlear Implants and Other Implantable Technologies
We are delighted to announce that there will be a HEARRING symposium with our experts present at the upcoming CI2024, the International Conference on Cochlear Implants and Other Implantable Technologies! The conference takes place on 21-24 of February in Las Palmas of Gran Canaria in Spain, while the HEARRING Symposium will happen on the 23d of February, 2024 at 3:35 p.m. WET in Hall 7.
What can you expect?
The focus of the symposium will be on adults.
We set the stage for understanding how to improve CI and EAS hearing in adults by presenting the importance of stimulating the apical region (Prof. Agrawal), and by understanding psycho-acoustic evaluation of apical electric stimulation (Prof. Van De Heyning). Furthermore, we bring to spotlight the importance of preserving the delicate structures of the inner ear (Prof. Gavilán) as it is crucial for optimal results. We then provide the evidence that this is possible and is supported by long-term clinical data (Prof. Hagen). This is achieved by relying on quality standards (Prof. Hagr), serving as a holistic guide for clinics. While scientific evidence illuminates the path forward, technology access remains a challenge and we need to emphasize the practical importance of Adult Hearing Screening (Prof. Lassaletta) and reimbursement. All of this concludes the presentation by Ellen Andries PhD on the ICF (international classification of functioning, disability and health) for adults, which will establish a common language for healthcare providers when it comes to understanding the importance of CI’s and EAS outcomes.
