Since we launched the Cochlear™ Nucleus® Aqua+, we’ve had great feedback – people really appreciate the additional flexibility they have using their Cochlear Implant in the water.
The Nucleus 6 Sound Processor is water-resistant, but for even greater peace of mind, you can use it with the Aqua+.
Swimming is obvious, but some of your favourite uses for Aqua+ happen at home. Lots of you enjoy catching up with the radio news during your morning shower or listening to music while you relax in the bath (candles and chocolate optional!). And our sporty recipients just love being able to jump straight in the shower after a long, sweaty run or cycle ride. Kids especially benefit from hearing in the bath. We all know how much they love to play in the warm, bubbly water and this relaxed family time is a great opportunity for parents to chat with their children and help them practice their speech and listening. Remember that the Aqua+ requires you to use rechargeable batteries. If you need them, these can be purchased in our online store.
More Nucleus Cochlear recipients than ever before will be jumping, diving and splashing in the water this summer. Will you be one of them?
Although it’s a simple concept, the Aqua+ took some time to develop. We needed to be sure the device would be fully protected, whilst not reducing the quality of hearing. Since its introduction, we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive feedback. It’s things like this that help our recipients enjoy life to the full.
