Back in March I wrote about the FDA's approval of the first fully implantable hearing aid. Although the aid does not appear to be useful for my type of hearing loss, which is progressive, I like the idea of a fully implantable aid as an alternative to regular hearing aids and cochlear implants. Since many people seemed interested in the news and my blog post I thought I would share a fascinating blog post you might like to check out: Looking back... from the Livejournal blog Building My Self Esteem. The author of the blog is participating in the clinical study for the Esteem implant. She has some wonderful insights into her hearing and the positive life changes that have come about due to it.
Is anyone else participating in this trial? It's such interesting new technology.
