Three experiments examined whether the Clarion 1.2 S-Series cochlear implant could be safely and effectively used within a Carstens Medizinelektronik EMA (electromagnetic articulography) system. Experiment 1 indicated no measurable effects of EMA magnetic fields on implant function. Experiment 2 showed no influence of the implant on the accuracy of EMA measurements. Experiment 3 found no indication of reduced sentence repetition abilities when EMA fields were present. The results suggest experiments with the Clarion 1.2 cochlear implant and the Carstens AG100 articulograph are safe and feasible.
