Cochlear implants have helped thousands of people worldwide. Most users wear their systems throughout the entire day. At Oticon Medical, we know that any device failure impacts our patients and their families; it disrupts school or work routines, creates frustration and may precipitate a decline in personal performance. That is why we work so hard to produce the most reliable devices possible.
As a cochlear implant manufacturer, we report device failures in accordance with the International Standard ISO 5841-2:2000 & the principles described in the European & Global Consensus on Cochlear Implant Failures & Explantations.
Note: Oticon Medical imposes a strict report policy as part of its quality commitment by counting all devices removed for reasons other than those related to the implant.
All registered recipients worldwide are included.
