Swimming with the Nucleus 6 Sound Processor Just Got Splashier!
Introducing the New Aqua+ Accessory*
Being able to hear while in and around water is important, and we want to make sure there’s nothing stopping our Nucleus 6 recipients from enjoying water activities such as underwater swimming. That’s why we designed the new Aqua+ accessory that transforms the Nucleus 6 (or Nucleus 5) Sound Processor into the only waterproof behind-the-ear solution – a form-fitting swimsuit for your processor!
The Aqua+ has been designed from the ground up for ease of use, sleek looks, and versatility. Its flexible sleeve envelops your processor in a watertight housing, and a specially-designed waterproof coil connects to the sound processor within the sleeve. It’s durable, reusable†, compact, and of course, waterproof!
Ordering the new Aqua+
The Aqua+ will be available to order starting May 2, 2014. For new recipients, it can be ordered as one of the optional accessory choices. Recipients with a Plus One option can redeem it for the new Aqua+ once available. For existing Cochlear recipients with a Nucleus 6 or Nucleus 5 Sound Processor, it can be ordered from the Cochlear web store.
Be on the lookout for more details on Aqua+ coming in May! Please contact your Cochlear representative if you have any questions.
* The Nucleus 6 Sound Processor with the Aqua+ is water resistant to level IP68 of the International Standard IEC60529. This water protection only applies when you use the Aqua+ and rechargeable batteries. Not compatible with the acoustic component.
† Testing shows Aqua+ can be re-used up to 50 times, but this may vary depending on your particular use of it.
