It would be interesting to have stastistics on:

How many can hear on the phone.
The life expectancy of someone who is implanted with a CI in comparision to the general life expectancy of all Deaf and HOH people.
These are stastistics I'd be very curious to read about.
I also looked at Wilko and but couldn't find the part that was stated in this vidio. It's not particularly factual. It says that deaf that were born deaf don't benifit from CI when it seems some do. Certainly HOH and some congenitally born deaf do. In fact I've been noticing them as being among the most successful.
Er...what does life expectancy wearing a CI have to do with the price of eggs?
The other two stats made perfect sense.
