A Cochlear Implant Success Story

In this informative and touching short video, Helen, who has been living with a cochlear implant for over a decade, tells her story. The implant enables her to take part in the hearing world at a very high level, studying at a top university for a demanding science degree, and even taking part in a dance sport team. But in the video Helen is also honest about the limitations of the technology, and reminds us that the implantation is a fairly major surgical intervention - nobody's idea of fun.
