Advanced Bionics recall update

3 02 2011

Advanced Bionics have an update on the recall.

AB have identified the malfunctioning problem of two defective cochlear implants, which were giving shocks and pain to the users. Over 5,000 devices were voluntarily recalled by Advanced Bionics.

AB cochlear implants may be ready for dispatch and use by April 2011. However, the FDA process will hold up availability in the USA for some time. The new batch of cochlear implants will be manufactured with extra stringent electronic sheathing to avoid any possibility of short circuits.

Yay. Now more people have a good choice of cochlear implants available to choose from.

Go, Advanced Bionics!

With thanks to Zubair and Bob for their beady eyes and ears.
