So Advanced Bionics has a new processor coming out, huh? The Neptune. Someone over in Europe attended a conference and found out a bit about the new device. That person also scanned and uploaded the brochure for the new device as well. Check it out! http://www.mediafire.com/?5swv2zy4wwn60tr (XPS) or http://www.mediafire.com/?0mr216dvmxw0vfc (PDF).
Looks like a pretty neat processor, and you can go swimming with it on! Neat! You don't even have anything on your ear. There's the coil, then the processor is a small body worn processor. From what I've read on the HearingJourney.com forums, the Neptune is due to be released in Europe in September. As for the US, who knows, since the FDA has to approve of these things. They still need to re-approve AB's implants first. But I do think this is real exciting for Advanced Bionics!
