Main Sponsor

MED-EL is a family-owned pioneering provider of hearing implant solutions, and the leader in the region. The company was founded by Dr. Ingeborg and Prof. Dr. Erwin Hochmair and is the inventor of the cochlear implant in the form in which it is known today.

MED-EL established its presence in the Middle East and North Africa market in the early 1990s, and continues to build on its unwavering commitment to supporting individuals in overcoming hearing loss as a barrier to communication; through researching, investing in and consequently offering the widest range of solutions to treat various types and degrees.

Most recently, in late 2019 MED-EL announced SONNET 2, the latest generation of BTE audio processor for MED-EL cochlear implants. From Adaptive Intelligence to wireless connectivity, SONNET 2 is packed with tons of new technology that’s made for the best hearing experience possible. SONNET 2 is fully compatible with AudioLink—a universal connectivity device that allows you to stream sound from phones, tablets, TVs, and much more. In addition to that the AudioKey app, can allow you to your change setting, locate your audio processor, and check your hearing stats—all directly from your phone.

Furthermore, the new Synchrony 2 cochlear implant has been developed to be as close as possible to natural hearing. ENT surgeons worked close with us to optimize surgical handling, a key issue for them: the more intuitive it is, the more patients they can operate, even those with difficult anatomies. SYNCHRONY 2 therefore boasts the proven performance, MRI safety, and reliability of the SYNCHRONY cochlear implant. In addition, it offers a slimmer, shorter, central electrode with the most flexible electrode arrays and long-term stability. All in the best solution for a simplified surgical approach for individual anatomies, regardless of implanted side.

Moreover, The new BONEBRIDGE BCI 602 implant requires a nearly 50% reduction in drilling depth and provides professionals with a more straightforward and faster surgical procedure. The clear sound quality and high comfort levels that the BONEBRIDGE is known for will not be affected. It will also be compatible with current and future SAMBA audio processors. All the new implants are compatible with old audio processors to deliver backwards compatibility, which is part of the company’s philosophy.
