Do you or someone you know wear hearing aids but still have difficulty understanding others?
MAXUM may be the perfect choice.
The MAXUM is an Implant
MAXUM is a revolutionary technology that provides significant benefits over hearing aids by providing more clarity while reducing feedback and occlusion. The MAXUM System is a hearing implant which includes a small magnetic titanium device and an advanced sound processor. The implant is placed in the middle ear with a simple, minimally invasive procedure and the sound processor is discreetly worn in the ear canal. The advanced sound processor uses electromagnetic energy to vibrate the implant which directly stimulates the inner ear or cochlea. This direct cochlear stimulation provides cleaner, crisper sound quality and more amplification without feedback. This allows for improved audibility and speech understanding.
Your physician or audiologist/hearing instrument specialist will perform several audiological tests and a medical examination to assess your specific type and degree of hearing loss. The results will help in determining if the MAXUM is an option.
MAXUM is indicated for use in adults, 18 years of age or older, who have a moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss and desire an alternative to an acoustic hearing aid. Prior to receiving the device, it is recommended that an individual have experience with appropriately fit hearing aids.
MAXUM may not be appropriate for people who have conductive or neural hearing loss, active middle ear infections or tympanic membrane (eardrum) perforations associated with recurrent middle ear infections. Also, for people with disabling tinnitus (ringing in the ear), a MAXUM implant may not be appropriate.
Caution: Federal (US) law restricts this device to sale be or on the order of a physician. For indications for use, contraindications, warnings and precautions consult additional safety information.
