Main Sponsor

MED-EL is a family-owned provider of hearing implant solutions, and the leading manufacturer in the region. The company was founded by Dr. Ingeborg and Prof. Dr. Erwin Hochmair, who also pioneered the modern cochlear implant.

We established our presence in the Middle East and North Africa market in the early 1990s, and continue to build on our unwavering commitment to supporting individuals in overcoming hearing loss as a barrier to communication through research and investment. As a result, we offer the widest range of hearing solutions for various types and degrees of hearing loss, which we can tailor to best match individual needs. After all, everyone's hearing journey is unique, and we know that one size doesn't fit all.

Take our most recent audio processor, RONDO 3, which was launched in 2020. With wireless streaming, wireless charging, and superior hearing performance, RONDO 3 is incredibly simple for cochlear implant recipients to use. Not only is it compatible with any brand or type of hearing aid, but RONDO 3 is also easy to adjust to that hearing aid for optimal hearing. It's fully compatible with AudioLink—a universal connectivity device for streaming sound from phones, tablets, TVs, and much more. And the AudioKey 2 app lets recipients change RONDO 3's settings, locate it, and check hearing stats—all directly from their phone.

We also introduced SAMBA 2 last year, the latest generation audio processor for SOUNDBRIDGE and BONEBRIDGE. With a stylish, easy-to-use design and hearing technology that adapts to the user's environment, it's designed to make the hearing experience easy for middle ear and bone conduction implant recipients. And the second-generation BONEBRIDGE implant, BCI 602, offers straightforward surgery with around 50 % less drilling, while still giving users healthy skin and the same great sound quality as before.
