As the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, Cochlear’s story goes back more than 40 years to when Professor Graeme Clark invented the first multi-channel cochlear implant.

Since then, we’ve provided more than 700,000 implantable devices in over 180 countries, helping people of all ages to hear and live the life they want.
