Auditory Implant Service

MED-EL Rehabilitation Video Project

MED-EL are working on a video project to help families across the world to work together to help people with a cochlear implant to do rehabilitation exercises at home.  They are currently looking for volunteers to take part in a one-off short video, with the filming taking on any time and date to suit volunteers between 4-6 December in Southampton / London.

As part of the project, MED-EL are looking for a range of people with a cochlear implant and a family member or friend to be filmed practising everyday listening exercises designed to help people with their daily rehabilitation.  The short 2 minute video clips will be used on MED-EL rehabilitation blog posts and hosted on the MED-EL YouTube Channel to support other families and implant users to use the helpful hints and tips for at home, learning by observing other families / friends.  A session is expected to last approximately 45 minutes only; during this time a MED-EL hearing therapist will choose a rehabilitation exercise that she will go through with you and a family member or friend (off camera), then once you’re happy with the activity, yourself and your friend would repeat the exercise on camera. 

Filming times are flexible, so can be after school / work.  All travel expenses will be paid along with a small thank you gift from MED-EL.

Please email Nicola Trussell at MED-EL if you are interested in taking part or if you have more questions.  Nicola can be contacted via nicola.trussell@medel.com or via text message / call at 07808 556 904.
