The human ear is an unbelievably complex organ. Many who are hard of hearing may be suffering from a disease or non-functioning of the cochlea - a part of the inner ear. Among the several diseases that could affect this cavity, the auditory portion of the ear, one strikes at birth itself, rendering the child deaf. As a result, the child also fails to develop speech capability. This is what we recognise as being 'deaf and mute.'

Although some of them acquire the skill of lip-reading or communicating by sign-language, they still remain handicapped in this respect throughout their lives. Over the years, research in medical science and technology has led to the development of 'cochlear implants' (CI) which, when used at a proper age along with appropriate care and follow-up, can conquer the inability to speak. The only stumbling block to obtaining this ...
