One of the technological wonders of our time, the cochlear implant became the first electronic hearing device to restore a lost human sense in 1969, something one deaf person described as helping him escape a world of soundless movement and voiceless faces. Depending on the region of the world, as many as three in a thousand children are born with hearing impairments that can only be treated with a cochlear implant. In 1980, the Austrian academics Ingeborg and Erwin Hochmair developed the first cochlear implant with multiple channels a dramatic improvement over single-channel implants. Their invention has allowed more than 200,000 people around the world to clearly understand speech rather than only muffled sound.
