New STATISTICA Case Study: Advanced Bionics Analyzes Clinical Studies

Share Article

Advanced Bionics produces implants to restore hearing to the profoundly deaf. The Clinical Research Department uses STATISTICA to analyze the data from their clinical studies. Research Scientist, Julie Bestel, of the Clinical Research Department worked with StatSoft to release a new case study about their use of STATISTICA to analyze the data from their clinical studies.


A new STATISTICA case study by Advanced Bionics has been published. Advanced Bionics, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of cochlear implant systems, has been recently utilizing the STATISTICA analytics software for the analysis of clinical studies. Advanced Bionics’ medical devices are designed to restore hearing for the profoundly deaf. The STATISTICA software is instrumental in enabling Advanced Bionics’ continuous improvement of these devices by analyzing data from clinical studies.

The subjects who are chosen for clinical studies are asked to complete the Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit (APHAB) questionnaire, which is designed to assess their subjective benefit in various listening situations. STATISTICA produces a graph as a result of comparing the Strategy effect on the mean APHAB score.

Advanced Bionics needs attractive and customizable graphs for the clinical data. These graphs are used in presentations at scientific meetings and conferences worldwide. STATISTICA was the software of choice for their analytic and visualization needs.

By engaging StatSoft to deliver training, Advanced Bionics’ employees learned how to utilize the STATISTICA software quickly, and it also helped them identify possibilities for future uses and needs. StatSoft trainers instructed them to create their desired graphs by using repeated measures ANOVA and other modules within STATISTICA.

STATISTICA provides a critical tool within the Clinical Research Department at Advanced Bionics. The STATISTICA graphs are a key component when delivering presentations at international conferences. The quality of these graphs is universally praised by the attendees of these conferences.

StatSoft, Inc., the creators of STATISTICA, was founded in 1984 and is now one of the largest global providers of analytic software worldwide.
