Re: Fully Implantable cochlear implant
Primus2013   8/24/2013 6:13:01 AM
An implanted nuclear powered anything is a bad idea. You should research into nuclear power so you understand the physics and the fact it will never provide a viable source of implanted power. 

 

Secondly the issue with a fully implantable cochear implant is that it is restricted to the fact that current microphone, battery and sound processing technology is not mature enough to be implantable. Remember that infants are being implanted with the expectation that it will operate for their whole life. Battery technology is not there yet (and no...nuclear power that is small enough to implant is not the answer). 

 

"Cochlear implant companies are NEVER going to release a commercial totally implantable cochlear implant"....... "Man will never walk on the moon", "No one will ever need more than 640K of RAM in their PC".
