Implantable hearing aids: engineering, ethics and prospects for the future

Where deaf children might once have spent their entire lives in institutions, with the help of implantable hearing aids it is now possible to let deaf children hear again. Although this creates new possibilities, it has also created more pressure to implant hearing aids at increasingly younger ages and in children with lesser hearing loss. At Border Sessions Hoetink will discuss the effects of hearing loss, the technical possibilities for rehabilitation and ethical dilemmas, as well as sketching several prospects for the future.
