The future of cochlear implants for profoundly deaf people now seems assured, and further research should improve its benefits. The present benefits of cochlear implants have now been clearly demonstrated. The results have shown that many postlingually deaf adults get significant open-set speech recognition using electrical stimulation alone, and that profoundly deaf children with a cochlear implant get better speech perception than similar children who use hearing aids or tactile vocoders.
