A Simply Smarter Way to Connect Children to a World of Sound
Children with hearing loss need access to better signal-to-noise ratios than adults.1 Input processing and dual microphone technology are great ways to improve hearing in difficult listening environments, but there are numerous listening situations in which direct connection can yield further improvements.
Here is just one way children with Cochlear hearing implants might use these accessories:
Due to the forward facing position of the occupants, sub-optimal acoustics and lack of visual cues, car rides can be a difficult communication environment for passengers. With the Cochlear Wireless Mini Microphone, the voice of someone in the front can reach a child in a car seat in the back of the vehicle. Children need to hear approximately 21,000 words per day for their vocabularies to develop at an appropriate pace,2 so using the Mini Microphone can help to transform ride time into learning time.
Cochlear Wireless accessories were created with kids in mind. They are designed to be easy to pair and use, so more time can be spent hearing, connecting, and communicating with the world. To learn more about Cochlear Wireless Accessories visit www.Cochlear.com/US/Wireless
