Our implant delivers virtually continuous central-simulation for full-spectrum audio. Instead of providing localized stimulation to specific areas of the basilar membrane, we send the entire frequency through the electrode array and allow the neural ganglia to naturally encode the information for further processing in the brain.
The audio is processed by our digital signal processor and partitioned into 9 bands before being sent to our proprietary Frequency Spectrum Modulator (FSM).

The FSM generates a high-resolution carrier wave and delivers the final audio signal to the subdermal coil at a near-continuous rate, resulting in higher fidelity sound compared to pulsatile trains of stimulation found in competing products.
Neubio's implant also offers several benefits: reduced surgical trauma due to minimal insertion depth, superior integrity of the cochlea by maximizing distance from the lateral walls, and reduced candidacy criteria for patients with ossification.
Neubio offers the thinnest and shortest electrode in the industry, facilitating a gentle insertion process that minimizes the risk of damaging the delicate cochlea structure and preserving residual hearing. The unique curved shape of our electrode array enables it to sit close to the modiolus, providing a potential path to improved speech outcomes for patients.
Our unique Frequency Spectrum Modulator (FSM) receives sound from ClearSound and converts it into a high-resolution analog signal. It then generates a carrier wave to deliver the sound to the implant coil in a near-constant stream, resulting in a higher-fidelity signal than traditional pulsatile stimulation.
Our implant is the thinnest and smallest implant in the industry, providing surgeons with the option for shorter surgical procedures and minimizing the time a patient needs to be under anesthesia.
Our implant features 12 electrodes and Neubio's internal receiving unit is passive and does not contain any electronic parts, making it the most compact and slim implant in the market. One of its key advantages is its ultra-thin electrodes, which preserve the remaining hearing of the patient. Additionally, the BOLD Implant is compatible with 1.5T MRI.
