Cochlear Implant Support With Aci Alliance

The American Cochlear Implant Alliance is a not-for-profit membership organization created with the purpose of eliminating barriers to cochlear implantation by sponsoring research, driving heightened awareness and advocating for improved access to cochlear implants for patients of all ages across the US. ACI Alliance members are clinicians, scientists, educators, and others on cochlear implant teams as well as parent and consumer advocates. An annual meeting for professional members is convened

Background:

In 2010, a group of surgeons, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and representatives of Cochlear Implant manufacturers met to discuss the initiation of an organization that would address the existing challenges they faced involving Cochlear Implants. This group determined that an inclusive and collaborative organization was needed to eliminate barriers to cochlear implantation. The organization would drive change by improving access to, and increasing awareness about Cochlear Implants through a concerted effort among health care professionals, patients and their families, corporations, clinics and hospitals. The founding members began working on building this important organization and in 2011 the "American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance Foundation” was incorporated as a non-profit entity.

WHAT IS A COCHLEAR IMPLANT?

A cochlear implant is an electronic medical device designed to restore the ability to perceive sounds and understand speech by individuals with moderate to profound hearing loss. Children and adults who are not sufficiently helped by hearing aids may benefit from cochlear implants. Unlike a hearing aid, which delivers amplified sound acoustically, a cochlear implant bypasses damaged hair cells in the cochlea and stimulates the remaining nerve fibers directly through the application of electrical current. A cochlear implant is a device for people whose hearing technology needs may be beyond hearing aids.
