Thread: Cochlear implant Processor self-programming?

  1. #1

    Default Cochlear implant Processor self-programming?

    Hey!

    I've been self-programming my (and my mom's) Phonak hearing aids for a few years. I am getting a cochlear implant in late Aug.

    Cochlear Americas uses Custom Sounds 4.0 software for programming, and of course the processor to computer interface which they call programming pods.

    Anyone ever do their own mapping???

    Jakey has a unique approach we all grown to love...NOT. Consider it a warm welcome by his standards.

    Batshit crazy or no, cochlear implants are a very small percentage of the HOH community. Self programmers are also a very small percentage of the HOH community. So you may be asking for advice about something/someone that is non-existent?

    Perhaps some of the people who have cochlear implants can comment. I find it possible that there are less opportunities for "fine tuning" cochlear implants than hearing aids, but that's purely conjecture. No matter what, you're clearly going to be working with a professional for awhile. Seems like the approach would be to give that a try and if you feel like you need more fine tuning ability to consult with the professional you're working with.

    Jakey, it be helpful if you'd explain your knowledge occasionally that support your less than helpful derogatory views. My frustration with you is that you seldom share actual knowledge to support such vitriolic views. You certainly have the capability to be helpful but seldom choose to do so.

    Kenny why don't you tell why you think it is a good idea? Hell maybe he can drill his own hole in his head?

    I'm a woman.

    ...and actually, I spoke to my audiologist when I got my CI eval. After explaining to her that I have been self-programming my own hearing aids, she said that Cochlear Americas plans to enable some limited self-programming functioning in the remote. I have also read online about some other people self-programming via different research projects. So... **shrug**
