  • Advanced Bionics Makes Cochlear Implants Bluetooth-Compatible
    ...mploys the same technology used in sister company Phonak's hearing aids (https://www.hearingtracker.com/hearing-aids/phonak-audeo-m). Advanced Bionics and Phonak are subsidiaries of Sonova Group, the world's biggest hearing aid manufacturer, which is integrating its new Bluetooth platform into all its premium hearing products.

The competition has spurred both companies to continue innovating. Among other things, Advanced Bionics last year gained market share with the introduction of its new MRI-ready cochlear implants (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180830005174/en/AB-Introduces-Hassle-Free-MRI-Cochlear-Implant). Most implant wearers cannot get MRI's because of the magnets in their cochlear implants....
