technology and enhancing quality of life for thousands of
children and adults in over 60 countries worldwide.
Dr. Ingeborg Hochmair
CEO and Founder
MED-EL is committed to enriching the lives of deaf and
severely hearing impaired individuals by providing superior
cochlear implant systems to candidates worldwide. This

innovation spanning over 25 years.
Innovations include developing the world's first BehindThe-Ear (BTE) speech processor (1991) and the world's first
multi-channel, high-speed cochlear implant (1994). The
COMBI 40+ Cochlear Implant System continues this
tradition by combining the latest advancements in cochlear
implant technology and the highest safety and reliability
standards.
The results:
COMBI 40+ Implant
and
TEMPO+ Speech Processor
outstanding performance for users
QUALITY & RELIABILITY
The COMBI 40+ Cochlear Implant is manufactured
according to the highest quality standards in order to
ensure long term reliability.
All materials used in the implant have been rigorously
tested for biocompatibility, durability and reliability. MEDEL maintains a quality management system that meets all
ISO 9001 standards and EN 46001. The COMBI 40+

MAGNETS
COMT+ Coil magnets with a diameter of 11 mm and
12mm are used to keep the coil positioned on top of the
implant. The larger the magnet’s diameter, the stronger its
magnetic force. To adjust the coil’s magnetic strength to the
user’s individual needs, up to two additional magnets can
be added. Usually, the magnet inside the coil measures
11 mm in diameter.
