Testing at University of Wisconsin – Part 1

Bilateral Cochlear Implant testing

Bilateral Cochlear Implant testing

As we told you previously, our daughter took part in a study to assess the positive effects of bilateral cochlear implants at the Speech and Hearing Lab of the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

Here is a photo of our daugher looking on as she is placed in the booth with a semi-circle array of speakers. She was instructed to try and detect where the sound is originating from by using a computer mouse to click on the speaker that she believes the sound originates from.

This is to try and gauge the benefits of sound localization that are being realized from having bilateral implants.

We will give more details of her trip in future posts.
