A new perimodiolar electrode array, the curly-with stylet (CwS), has been developed and undergone safety trials in human cadaver temporal bones. The array was developed as a result of animal and modelling studies which indicated that there are potential advantages in situating the electrode array in closer proximity to the neural elements. Preliminary studies with four patients in Melbourne implanted with a developmental pre-curved array had supported the predictions of lower current requirements and possibly more focussed spread of excitation.
