Summer break is almost here! If you are considering a cochlear implant for your child with hearing loss, the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 6* and Kanso®** Sound Processors have a water accessory, the Aqua+, so they can swim, splash and play in the water with their friends and family.
Being able to play in and around water is important, and we help make sure there’s nothing stopping your child from enjoying water activities.
Hear from some little Cochlear implant recipients who love the water with their Aqua+:
“The best thing is going to the pool and getting to hear my friends in the water and not having to read their lips the whole time. I also enjoy listening to the splashing of water and to the ocean up close.” – Cameron K.
“When I was little I had a really hard time learning to swim cause I could not hear in water. The best part about the Aqua+ is it has allowed me to hear my swim instructor, and now I am learning to swim because of it! I also enjoy hearing my friends in the pool, and I can play with them instead of having to lip read. I even got to swim with the dolphins, which was just amazing to be able to hear while doing. I am much safer in a water environment with my Aqua+.” – Morgan K.
Let your little one swim, splash and soak with confidence!
