Florus Duvenage Cochlear Implant

Florus Duvenage Cochlear Implant

Personal message

UPDATE: Florus received his CI the 11th of December 2017 and it was activated the 10th of January 2018. The support we received has been phenomenal! Thank you to everyone for contributing.

 

Florus Duvenage was born on the 8th of May 2015. He is a happy bouncy busy boy! To our shock he was diagnosed with a moderate to severe sensori-neural hearing loss bilaterally in June 2016. His hearing has since deteriorated to moderate-profound and he needs a cochlear implant to allow him to hear.

He was evaluated by the wonderful Cochlear Implant Unit at Tygerberg Hospital and without this implant he will not develop normal speech and language. It is our wish to give our son the best possible future. We want to keep him in a mainstream school and without cochlear implants this might never be possible.

The cochlear implant is a device that provides hearing to severely and profoundly deaf individuals who do not benefit from conventional hearing aids. The implant consists of two parts: an implantable electrode array that is implanted in the inner ear and a speech processor that is worn behind the ear. The microphone picks up the speech signals and translates them into an electrical code that is then delivered to the hearing nerve in the inner ear. This results in the direct of electrical impulses along the hearing nerve and to the speech and language centres in the brain.
