You call yourselves a “Hearing Company”… Isn’t that a bit presumptuous?
We don’t think so. Our mission is both to make Cochlear Implants and to serve the Deaf community. This is often a contradiction, but it does not have to be.
The Hearing – Deaf binary is too simple, and we don’t live in it or enforce its normalcy. We give people the option to hear, but at the same time we do not eliminate anyone’s Deafness. For Cochlear Implant users, Hearing and Deaf identities exist in parallax.
