FM Options for Nucleus® Recipients
In a classroom setting, FM systems may help a student with a Nucleus Cochlear Implant better understand the teacher by allowing the student to hear the teacher over other classroom sounds. This occurs by having the teacher wear a microphone, and having the student wear the FM receiver that connects with his or her sound processor. There are a variety of FM system and receiver options available. Cochlear™ offers several options for FM system use.
Nucleus® 5 FM Options
- Ear level receiver connected directly to the sound processor (ex: Phonak ML14i)
- Ear level FM receiver connected to the sound processor using the Euro Accessory Adaptor (ex: Phonak MLxi) TIP: Check out our YouTube video on using the Nucleus 5 with the Euro Adaptor!
- Neckloop receiver that functions using the telecoil in the sound processor (ex: Phonak My Link) FM cable connected to body-worn receiver
Nucleus® Freedom™ FM Options
- Ear level FM receiver connected to the sound processor using the Freedcom MicroLink
- Neckloop receiver that functions using the telecoil in the sound processor (ex: Phonak My Link)
