Individually Adjustable Signal Processing Algorithms for Improved Speech Intelligibility with Cochlear Implants

Document Thumbnail

Thanks to the development of cochlear implants (CIs) the treatment of certain hearing impairments and even deafness has become possible. However, up to now individual adjustments of the speech processing within a cochlear implant are limited to an unequal amplification of different frequency bands. As the perception of speech among patients differs beyond just loudness, improvements concerning individually adjustable signal processing are to be made. A novel approach is being presented, which aims on increasing the intelligibility for patients by extending common speech recognition tests to allow for an optimized speech processing tailored to the patient's needs.
