Nucleus profile plus

The Nucleus Profile Plus Series cochlear implant

The Cochlear Nucleus Profile Plus Implant with the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor allows users access to direct streaming with a compatible android phone, dependent upon implementation of Google Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA) protocol into the handsets. Users can also connect to their implanted hearing aid using the Nucleus smart app, which allows them to control, monitor, and customise hearing settings, view personalised hearing information, and even locate a missing sound processor, all from the convenience of their smartphone.

Other features include Hearing Tracker, which records coil-offs time and time in speech (the amount of time spent in speech environments, including FM radio and streaming audio); and ForwardFocus, a user-activated algorithm that reduces distracting noise coming from behind a person so they can more easily enjoy a face-to-face conversation. The implant is designed so that recipients have safe access to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, without the need to remove the internal magnet or shielding the implant. The magnet is still accessible for removal, if needed.

“For more than two decades, Cochlear has been pleased to provide Nucleus Cochlear Implant recipients with access to MRIs. Now, with the approval of the Nucleus Profile Plus Implant, we are able to provide our cochlear implant recipients MRI access without the need to remove the internal magnet or needing a head wrap,” said Tony Manna, president of Cochlear Americas. “We are delivering this new innovation without sacrificing our longstanding cochlear implant reliability track record, our thin implant design, and the easy to access magnet that ensures our recipients have continued MRI access now and in the future.”

The new implant is designed for routine 1.5 and 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging scans without the need to remove the internal magnet and was first made commercially available in Germany in April.
