Advanced Bionics is a global leader providing solutions for severe-to-profound hearing loss. For more than 25 years, AB has removed limitations for those otherwise isolated from the world of sound. Always focused on bringing meaningful change through innovative technology, AB has set the standard for performance, lifestyle support, and access to sound in the field of cochlear implantation. Having implanted over 100,000 ears in over 130 countries and established a track record for developing high-performing, state-of-the-art products, our team of talented scientists, engineers, audiologists and other professionals are driven to succeed, work with integrity, and stay firmly committed to quality.
At AB, success begins with a passion for hearing restoration and is driven by our global workforce of over a thousand employees. AB is proud to be the only U.S. based manufacturer of cochlear implants and equally proud to be a part of the larger Sonova organization. Sonova companies include brands focused on hearing aids, cochlear implants, wireless communications, and clinical service. Together, we strive to create a world where everyone enjoys the delight of hearing and lives a life without limitations.
Hearing loss affects millions around the world. Advanced Bionics sees a world in which there is a solution for every type and degree of hearing loss. Where everyone enjoys in the delights of hearing. Where we can all connect powerfully with the world around us.
Turning this vision into a reality requires passion. Expertise. And understanding. Every patient is different and has individual needs. Our approach to treating hearing loss must be as unique as every patient we serve.
For our patients, sound orients them. It envelops them. It inspires them. And sound connects them. Every moment, every day, is more powerful when enriched by the connections that sound makes possible.
This is why the Advanced Bionics integrated approach is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible as no other audiology company can.
AB is proud to be the industry leader in developing reliable, high quality, and sophisticated hearing solutions which open up the world of sound for our wearers around the world. Studies have consistently demonstrated the advantages of AB technology in areas such as speech understanding, voice discrimination, and melody recognition and enjoyment. These include areas such as speech understanding, voice discrimination, and melody recognition and enjoyment.1,2,3
