Performance and preference for ACE stimulation rates obtained with nucleus RP 8 and freedom system


Weber, B P; Lai, W K; Dillier, N; von Wallenberg, E L; Killian, M J P; Pesch, J; Battmer, R D; Lenarz, T (2007). Performance and preference for ACE stimulation rates obtained with nucleus RP 8 and freedom system. Ear and Hearing, 28(2 Suppl):46S-48S.

Abstract

Cochlear recently released the Nucleus Freedom System which has been based on the Nucleus Research Platform 8. Both systems make use of the same implant, the CI24RE, which includes expanded total stimulation rates up to 32 kHz. In this study the performance of the ACE strategy at 500, 1200 and 3500 pps/channel was investigated using an ABC-CBA design. At the end of each period speech tests were performed. In the CBA phase the patients completed a comparative questionnaire to determine the subjective rate preference. Preliminary results in 13 recipients indicate no differences in for the ACE strategy at rates ranging from 500 pps to 3500 pps/channel.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
