Adam Kissiah’s Invention Recognized by NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist
NASA’s Office of the Chief Technologist recognizes technology developed by NASA employees that benefits the nation. In the article “Hearing is Believing,” Adam Kissiah is recognized for developing cochlear implant technology while working as an engineer at NASA.
Driven by his hearing problem and three failed corrective surgeries, Adam Kissiah started working in the mid-1970s on an implantable hearing device called the cochlear implant. A cochlear implant is a surgically implantable device that provides hearing sensation to persons with severe-to-profound hearing loss who receive little or no benefit from hearing aids.
Sprung from the mind of a NASA engineer, this medical miracle is a perfect example of how NASA knowledge is boundless and can touch the lives of many in ways unimaginable.
