Cutting-edge technology to help the deaf

Enabling hearing and improving quality of life - this is the personal mission of Ingeborg and Erwin Hochmair, the founders of the company MED-EL.

To achieve this, the Austrian family company continuously invests in research and development and is always on the search for optimal hearing solutions for its patients, half of which are children.

It was because of this focus on research that the company was able to develop new technologies for gentle implants suitable for maintaining residual hearing. Since the company began, MED-EL has stood for groundbreaking innovations in medical technology, as well as service and advice.

The company currently offers the most extensive range of specially developed systems and components for different types of hearing loss. Today, worldwide, more than 1,600 people work in 29 branches for MED-EL, with over 1,100 in the company's headquarters in Innsbruck.
