Noise - Phonak FM Simulation and ClearVoice

Posted Feb 02 2010 12:00am
Very cool simulation from Phonak about the power of their Dynamic FM system.  In the simulation you can adjust all the sound parameters including ambient noise, speakers voice and distance from speaker.   It also totals the SNR - Sound to Noise Ratio, which is increasingly important to understand for kids with Cochlear Implants.  New research is showing that keeping the background noise down is so critical.  While Lily can hear down to 20dbs in quiet, her hearing drops dramatically in noise.  Advanced Bionics is coming out with software called ClearVoice that makes important adjustments for this.   While approved in Canada, it is still in clinical trials in the US.
