After enduring hearing loss in his left ear for most of his life, Chris lost all his hearing in that ear at the age of 67.

With the help of the Osia® System, Chris has enjoyed a renewed zest for life and hobbies he enjoys, such as swimming

"One of the major sports I’ve been involved with, pretty well all my life, has been swimming," Chris said. “The Osia device has a waterproof case (Aqua+) available as an accessory which enables you to keep it on whilst swimming. I don’t notice it’s there, it doesn’t fall off, and it causes me no discomfort at all."

Chris has also become more active socially and his relationships have flourished.

"Being able to spend time and interact with my grandchildren is one of the great joys of my life.".
