Summer is here and most likely, your patients have plans to enjoy activities in and around water. The good news is the Nucleus® 7 and Kanso® Sound Processors are splash proof, but to make these sound processors waterproof your patients should have the Aqua+ accessory.
The Aqua+ is a reusable cover for cochlear implant sound processors that keeps them dry in and around water. The Aqua+ allows your patients to submerge underwater without the risk of water damage. The Aqua+ fits over the sound processor, like a sleeve, and lets your patients hear during any type of water activity. (Note: there is an Aqua+ specific to each sound processor.)
What should my patients and I know about the Aqua+?
- The ability to submerge CI sound processors in up to 10 feet for 2 hours without damaging the device.
- Provide waterproof protection for underwater swimming in all water types; including salt water, chlorine, soapy and fresh water.
- Comes with a safety line for added security.
Just in time for summer, your patients can order the Aqua+ Recipient Kit from the Cochlear Store.
