"I recently got the Aqua+ for both of my son's processors. We went to the beach and we used it for the first time. When I came home I opened the case, the processor was dry. It's amazing."

Kids can swim and play in water with Aqua+

Having a Cochlear Implant doesn't stop your child from enjoying their favorite water activities.

The Nucleus® Aqua+* is an accessory that keeps the Nucleus® Sound Processor dry and gives children the freedom to enjoy the water with family and friends.

Whether it's playing Marco Polo with their friends or competing on a swim team, our waterproof solutions allow kids to hear their best in and out of the water.

Whether it's salt, fresh or chlorinated, our solutions allow kids to hear their best in and out of the water.


* The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor with Aqua+ is water resistant to level IP68 of the International Standard IEC60529. This water protection rating means that the sound processor with the Aqua+ can be continuously submerged under water to a depth of 3 m (9 ft and 9 in) for up to 2 hours. This water protection only applies when you use a Cochlear Standard Rechargeable Battery Module or Cochlear Compact Rechargeable Battery Module. The Nucleus Aqua+ for Kanso is IP68 rated and approved for use with alkaline and nickel metal hydride batteries. The Nucleus Kanso Sound Processor is water-resistant without the Nucleus Aqua+ for Kanso accessory to level IP54 of the International Standard IEC60529.
