A new micro-receiver-stimulator for research studies on very young children as well as adults has been developed by Cochlear Pty Limited. The dimensions of the device are length 58 mm and width at front 18 mm. The width starts to increase 19 mm from the front, and the back section, which has the receiver coil and magnet, has a maximum diameter of 33 mm. The depth or thickness of the front portion of the electronic package is 5.7mm, and the remainder of the package 4.0 mm. The antenna section is 3.5 mm thick. The other dimensions of the front section of the electronic package are length 9.5 mm and width 13.7 mm. There is an angle of 160° between the titanium electronic package and the receiver coil. The dimensions of the receiver-stimulator were arrived at after anatomic studies on the temporal bones of children ranging in age from 2 to 11 months.
