Hearing aid shells (or earmolds) must couple the hearing aid with the user's ear. Earmolds have to fit the subject's outer ear canal properly to ensure a good performance of the aid. Because of the great variability in the anatomical pattern of the ear, earmolds are custom made. At present, an impression of the subject's ear canal is taken and used to(More)
The electric potential pattern generated by a cochlear implant was modeled using the finite-element method. The pattern, which is a response to bipolar current pulses from the implant electrode array, was investigated for different values of the electrical parameters of the human cochlea and of the array. Simulated data are compared with measurements in a(More)
