Implant Study Gets $3 Million

University researchers are getting more than $3 million in federal money to test modifications in cochlear implants. The grant will go toward examining the fitting approach used for cochlear implants. The funding comes from the National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders and will involve faculty at Arizona State University and University of Texas. The researchers will use feedback from patient trials to determine the usefulness of their ability to adjust the device.
