Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-01-25

A boot is used to cover an inlet of a microphone of an auditory prosthesis. The boot prevents water, sweat, and other debris from damaging the microphone or entering the prosthesis housing. Additionally, the boot can include structure that helps dampen vibrations within the auditory prosthesis, thus improving microphone performance.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-04-26

A device including an implantable sensor having a membrane displaceable in response to physical phenomena outside the sensor, wherein the device is configured to equalize a static pressure difference between an ambient environment and a back volume of the sensor.

Presented herein are implantable systems and methods for long-term delivery of treatment substance to the ear of a recipient of an implantable auditory prosthesis. The system comprises an implantable reservoir configured to have a treatment substance disposed therein, an implantable delivery tube having a proximal end fluidically coupled to the reservoir and a distal end positioned adjacent a target location within the recipient, and a passive activation mechanism configured to transfer a portion of the treatment substance in the reservoir to the delivery tube for delivery to the target location.

An external portion of an auditory prosthesis includes magnets, electronics, and other components. In bone conduction auditory prostheses, reducing the amount of mass subject to vibrations in an auditory prosthesis has a positive effect on tuning of the device. One way of reducing such mass is to resiliently more massive components within the auditory prosthesis housing. Such resilient mounting reduces the dampening effect that these massive components have on vibrations generated by the prosthesis. When electronic components are suspended, feedback to said components is also reduced, resulting improved performance.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-04-12

A method, comprising, fitting an electrical stimulating device to the recipient, the electrical stimulating device including electrodes implanted in the recipient, the electrical stimulating device being a multipolar electrical stimulating device, wherein the fitting includes simultaneously applying multipolar stimulation to the recipient via the electrodes based on at least two different stimulation channels of the electrical stimulating device.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-03-08

A device, comprising a prosthesis including an external component configured to output a signal in response to an external stimulus and a skin penetrating component configured to communicatively transfer the signal at least partially beneath skin of the recipient, wherein the skin penetrating component is configured to extend into skin of the recipient and substantially lay above a surface of bone of a recipient in abutting contact thereto.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-05-24

Embodiments presented herein are generally directed to a stimulating assembly of a cochlear implant that includes a perimodiolar flexure. The perimodiolar flexure is formed in a basal section of the stimulating assembly and has elastic properties and a shape so as to, after insertion into the cochlea, position the stimulating contacts disposed in the basal section of the stimulating assembly adjacent to a modiolar wall of the cochlea.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-01-11

A system, including an adaptive noise cancellation sub-system, wherein the system is configured to adjust operation of the sub-system from a first operating state to a second operating state upon a determination that operation of the adaptive noise cancellation sub-system will be effectively affected by an own voice body conducted noise phenomenon.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-01-18

A method including reducing a stimulation artefact of an implantable stimulator including a plurality of stimulating electrodes by obtaining respective information on respective artefact voltages at a first location resulting from stimulation by one electrode group or respective electrode groups of the implanted stimulator and determining an adjustment regime based on the obtained information that results in a reduction of the stimulation artefact at the first location relative to that which would be the case in the absence of the regime.


Patent
Cochlear Limited | Date: 2017-06-07

An external component of a medical device, including an actuator including a static magnetic flux path that reacts with a dynamic magnetic flux path to actuate the actuator, and a magnetic retention system configured to retain the external component to a recipient via interaction with a ferromagnetic component attached to a recipient, the magnetic retention system including a magnetic flux path that encircles the static magnetic flux path of the actuator.
