Abstract

See full text

Cochlear implant systems can include a cochlear electrode, a stimulator in electrical communication with the cochlear electrode, and a signal processor in communication with the stimulator. The signal processor can include circuitry and a can surrounding and housing the circuitry. The signal processor can further include a first impedance between the circuitry and the can in order to reduce unintended electrical communication between the cochlear electrode and the circuitry of the signal processor. Other components can similarly include impedance between their respective cans and circuitry to prevent such undesired communication. Components can communicate with one another via bidirectional communication. Communication can include communication of signals and inverted signals to reduce net charge flow through the wearer's body.
