These early adopters found out what happened when a cutting-edge marvel became an obsolete gadget... inside their bodies.

This is such a sad situation. On the one hand, the tech is legitimately outdated, and the company was struggling to make enough money to keep advancing its development. On the other hand, it improves the quality of life for a lot of people. Not being able to get any support with failing hardware is the worst possible outcome.

It would be amazing if, at the very least, the designs for these devices could be released to the world for free, so that people could find ways to hack on them and offer improvements. I know that there are other companies out there now, which are offering better, more modern solutions…but, being able to modify this tech easily would go a long way towards improving quality of life for patients with implants.
