NEW: Introducing the SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant System

Effortless Listening with SONNET and SONNET EAS
Medel - SYNCHRONY SystemNever miss a moment thanks to automatic sound management (ASM 2.0) that quickly adapts your listening programme to different environments. Automatic volume control, wind noise reduction, microphone directionality, and built-in wireless-ready connectivity make the SONNET ideal for people of all ages.






Water Proof and Single-Unit: The RONDO Audio Processor
Medel- WaterWear_Surfing_04The RONDO is the world’s first single-unit processor, providing users the benefit of having nothing behind the ear. It combines the coil, control unit and battery pack into a single-unit device. The WaterWear is a skin-tight transparent cover placed over the processor and closed with an adhesive strip to provide a tight seal. Its IP68 protection rating means that it is fully submersible in natural, chlorinated, or salt water.


Unbeatable MRI Compatibility
Medel -SYNCHRONY-implant-selfaligningmagnetFor the first time ever, cochlear implant users can undergo high-resolution MRI scans at 3.0 Tesla without the need for additional surgeries to remove and replace the implant magnet. Only the SYNCHRONY implant features a revolutionary magnet that means MED-EL users have the highest MRI compatible implant currently available.
