21/09/2016: More information for Families

There is a wealth of information in the FORUM section , specially for Families of implanted or for Cochlear implantation candidates. The stories which are posted are from children who have received successfully a Cochlear implant (mostly as a result of a Neonatal Hearing Screening program).

We have noticed that rarely visitors check the FORUM for additional topics or for more details on a specific topic, therefore in the section Information for Families we will start posting these success stories. The idea behind this is to distribute in a larger scale the successes and the positive experiences of Cochlear Implant users , who have faced in one particular period of their lives serious social integration challenges.  The material is quit optimistic, because it tells the stories of people with hearing deficits who managed to master various musical organs.

6/06/2016 : Updates for ILO TEOAE users

The section on ILO-Viewers was updated with information regarding the structure of the old TEOAE ILO files (up to v5 & probably v6) . This information has been requested many times over the years , but we were hoping to get access to more modern MATLAB subroutines , which could read ILO files (still not available) . Nevertheless the information is valid for anyone who wishes to build his / her  own subroutine code.
