Cochlear Implant Clinical Trials
Here are the 2 most popular medical studies for cochlear implant
Cochlear Implant Settings for Childhood Hearing Loss
Recruiting1 award7 criteria
Durham, North Carolina
This trial is investigating whether speech perception is better in pediatric cochlear implant (CI) recipients with functional pre-operative hearing when they use the hearing aid alone or combined electric-acoustic stimulation. Two cohorts of CI recipients aged 6 through 17 years will be evaluated.

study group with INCAT for Sensorineural Hearing Loss
This trial is testing a new device that can deliver steroids to the inner ear. The device will be used during surgery for patients who are almost completely deaf. These patients will also be receiving an implant to
Personalized Cochlear Implant Mapping for Hearing Loss

Opto-electrical Stimulation for Hearing Loss
Recruiting1 award5 criteria
Coral Gables, Florida
This trial is testing whether a new way of stimulating the auditory nerve - using light instead of electricity - is safe and effective in humans. If successful, this could improve hearing for people with cochlear implants.
Cochlear Implant for Unilateral Hearing Loss
Recruiting1 award8 criteria
Los Angeles, California
This trial is testing whether a cochlear implant (CI) performs better than a hearing aid (HA) for children with either asymmetric hearing loss (AHL) or single-sided deafness (SSD). The study also looks at whether using a CI in combination with a hearing aid (bimodal hearing) is more effective than using a hearing aid alone.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need insurance to participate in a trial?
Almost all clinical trials will cover the cost of the 'trial drug' — so no insurance is required for this. For trials where this trial drug is given alongside an already-approved medication, there may be a cost (which your insurance would normally cover).
Is there any support for travel costs?
Many of the teams running clinical trials will cover the cost of transportation to-and-from their care center.
Will I know what medication I am taking?
This depends on the specific study. If you're worried about receiving a placebo, you can actively filter out these trials using our search.
How long do clinical trials last?
Some trials will only require a single visit, while others will continue until your disease returns. It's fairly common for a trial to last somewhere between 1 and 6 months.
Do you verify all the trials on your website?
All of the trials listed on Power have been formally registered with the US Food and Drug Administration. Beyond this, some trials on Power have been formally 'verified' if the team behind the trial has completed an additional level of verification with our team.
How quickly will I hear back from a clinical trial?
Sadly, this response time can take anywhere from 6 hours to 2 weeks. We're working hard to speed up how quickly you hear back — in general, verified trials respond to patients within a few days.
