Find out how you, like Sue, can enjoy a ‘big advantage’

In 1984, having suddenly lost her hearing to Meningococcal Meningitis, Sue Walters put her faith in ‘groundbreaking’ new hearing technology - the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 22 implant. In the decades that followed, Sue received a second implant on her other ear and upgraded her sound processors many times. 

Now that she has access to the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor for both ears, Sue has experienced the differences from her previous devices that have made a real impact on her everyday living. 

‘As I get older, my hearing is getting better!’  

Find out why Sue is excited about being able to stream phone and conference calls, podcasts and music directly to both her sound processors, and how ForwardFocus^ is a ‘big advantage’ that ‘just helps you so much in background noise’. 


^ ForwardFocus is enabled by your clinician and user-controlled via the Nucleus Smart App.
