Preliminary Speech Perception Results through a Cochlear Prosthesis
Psychophysical as well as speech comprehension tests have been used in bilaterally deaf patients implanted with a four-channel cochlear prosthesis. The best open speech comprehension without lip-reading was obtained in a 24-year-old patient C. K. with progressive total hereditary deafness. This speech perception was achieved using a small portable stimulator activating only one of the four channels of the implant in a bipolar scala tympani electrode configuration.
