A new user interface, fully automatic 3D reconstruction and measurement of inner ear structures, simultaneous preoperative visualizations of various electrode arrays in the cochlea, support for placement planning of cochlear and bone conduction implants, and extensive postoperative analysis tools—those are just a few of the innovative features in the newest version of OTOPLAN. This software solution makes it possible to individualize hearing implant surgery—from planning the operation to the audiological fitting—like never before.

Intelligent Parallel Stimulation (IPS) compensates for the interference that occurs between electrodes.

How Cochlear Implant Recipients Benefit From Intelligent Parallel Stimulation

Since 2006, each channel or pair of electrodes in MED-EL’s cochlear implants has had its own current source. These 12 channels with independent current sources allow each electrode pair to stimulate the cochlea with more flexibility. For instance, several different electrode pairs can stimulate different places in the cochlea at precisely the same time, which is often referred to as simultaneous or parallel stimulation.
