The ability to hear is transformative. Without it, the world can feel isolating and disorienting. At Advanced Bionics, we believe everyone can enjoy a life filled with sound.
For over 25 years, we’ve been developing leading hearing innovations that help people hear again, or for the first time. Our partnership with Phonak allows us to provide even more leading-edge hearing loss solutions through our integration with the world’s most advanced and trusted power hearing aids.
We firmly believe that by improving your hearing, we give you the opportunity to make powerful connections with your family, friends, and the world around you.
Hearing plays a vital role in living a happy, healthy life. The reality today is that more people face hearing loss than ever before—466 million people, nearly 5% of the world’s population, experiences hearing loss. Left untreated, it can become a struggle to fully connect with family, friends, and the world.
The good news? There is hope. The field of hearing science and technology has made tremendous advancements in recent years. We live in a time where there’s a hearing solution for any type and degree of hearing loss.
Nearly one out of every three people over age 65 is affected by disabling hearing loss.1 This means there is a broad network of people, just like you, who have met their hearing loss head-on.
For people with mild-to-moderate hearing loss, hearing aids can provide an excellent solution. Hearing aids work by first capturing sound in the environment and making it louder. Then, the amplified sound is sent to your ears to be heard.
When your hearing loss is severe-to-profound, hearing aids may no longer meet your hearing needs. This degree of hearing loss may require a more advanced solution, such as a cochlear implant.
