"Using the Kanso, I'm able to run without a worry in the world. It is discreet and comfortable when I'm getting into all my yoga poses. I don't even notice it's there."

- Alison, Cochlear™ Nucleus® Kanso recipient, Australia

Life is busy for Alison, juggling her young family, teaching primary school and keeping fit. Her Cochlear Nucleus Kanso Sound Processor helps in all aspects of her active life. At work, she can not only hear students' questions, but also what direction they're coming from.

Alison's sound processor gives her the confidence to care for her own young children, without limitations. She says she enjoys it not only for its sound quality, but also for its comfort and discretion.

Even when Alison holds the most complicated yoga poses, nothing gets in the way. Her sound processor stays in place and is often hidden from view.
