The 22-electrode cochlear prosthesis developed by the University of Melbourne in conjunction with Cochlear Pty Ltd has been used successfully by profoundly deaf patients since 1982 and is now a part of everyday life for some 2000 people in many countries around the world. The implanted part of the prosthesis has remained relatively unchanged in this time except for the alteration of the design in 1986 to incorporate an implanted magnet and reduce the overall thickness of the device. The implanted magnet eliminated the need for wire headsets which were difficult to fit and in some cases did not maintain the position of the external transmitter coil adequately. This was felt to be essential before the prosthesis could be used in young children.
