ADVANCED BIONICS keeps shocking us.
Advanced Bionics Put Profit Over People q
We have been sharing info on the dangers of cochlear implants for a while here at the People of the Eye place simply because no one else was.
It wasn’t anything i wanted to pursue or even think about. But the truth kept on a calling and there are more truths to be told.
In addition to Advanced Bionics being fined by the FDA to the tune of $1.1 million dollars and having numerous recalls and having caused alot of deaths from meningitis infections post implantation – it was sued by a KY family who’s daughter got shocked by her Advanced Bionics cochlear implant four years AFTER it was implanted due to a moisture leak. A Ky jury awarded the family over $7 million dollars.

The latest is more facts are coming out about how Advanced Bionics engaged in corporate deviance – knowingly allowing their faulty devices to remain out on the market. This is a HUGE problem folks cuz these devices dont just sit on shelves, they don’t just travel in people’s pockets – they get implanted into the brain – yes the electrodes make contact with the brain and moisture leak where there is brain fluid is NOT NOT NOT NOT cool.
Deceit is not sweet. – So see the latest news story from the Today show of NBC about a family that is VERY upset that their daughter got a faulty implant. Language delay is not cool. Corporate deviance is derelict. Profit from false prophecies unjust. http://www.today.com/health/defective-cochlear-implants-shocked-kids-even-though-company-had-been-2D79371793
Note the quote from the doctor in the news:
Dr. Gadre says he’s angry that small children were forced to undergo multiple, traumatic surgeries.
“I think those human beings made a terrible decision,” he said. “When you start putting profits before people, because that’s the only way I can interpret this, if you start putting profits before people it never comes to a good end. There’s no way that that could ever come to a good end.”
Advanced Bionics putting profit over WEE people is totally unconscionable. AG Bell Association being associated (ie in bed with Advanced Bionics) – accepting HUGE amounts of money from Advanced Bionics and featuring them as their major conference sponsors is WRONG.
With a capital A for Audism and C for capitalism.
Very thankful that Audism Free America held a peaceful demonstration at Advanced Bionics in July 2013 and spelled out the truth to help make the invisible visible.
Audism Free America started a petition calling upon the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to initiate and impartial and independent investigation into the safety of cochlear implants especially in children. The petition has over 1500 signatures at the PETITION ONLINE site – Please feel free to sign and circulate. Many prominent folks have signed the petition such as Drs. Ben Bahan and Harlan Lane. Add your John Hancock so that we get ANSWERS. http://www.petitiononline.com/AFA62509/petition.html
