Phonak’s new digital FM technology is available in products that work with all cochlear implants. The system offers greater flexibility, ease of use, and noise immunity than traditional FM systems. It is particularly useful for schools with multiple FM users in one classroom, and with users in nearby classrooms.
Read an interview on AudiologyOnline with Dr. Hans E. Mülder, Director Marketing and Senior Audiologist at Phonak Communications, where he discusses the technology. Figures 2-4 show improvements in noisy situations over traditional FM (and no FM) for users of Advanced Bionics, Cochlear, and MED-EL cochlear implants.
