FDA Advisory Panel Votes Favorably on the First of Its Kind Hybrid Hearing Device from Cochlear
Date:11/11/2013

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cochlear Limited (ASX: COH), the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, announced today that an advisory committee to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted favorably on the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Hybrid™ L24 Implant System. This is a first of its kind system designed for the treatment of adults with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss in the high frequencies and normal to only mild hearing loss in the low frequencies, often referred to as "ski-slope" hearing loss.

The FDA is not bound by the recommendations of its advisory committees, but will consider the guidance during the final review of the new Hybrid device.

This first-of-its-kind technology consists of a unique combination of solutions to overcome high frequency hearing loss, which impairs a person's ability to hear voices clearly and understand speech in noise.
