Technical Support for Students Using Cochlear Implants

Our latest technology seminar and recent enquiries to the BRITE Equipment Loan Bank have prompted us to remind readers that free, expert help is available to students in Scotland who use cochlear implants.

The Scottish Cochlear Implant Programme team at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock provide advice and practical help to set up systems which improve the quality of sound entering a cochlear implant – so useful in potentially noisy learning environments.

The systems supported don’t necessarily need to be owned by the student. The team has set up equipment which members have borrowed from BRITE to enable students and colleges to “try before they buy”.
