Fun in and around water* is yours to enjoy with Aqua+ and your Nucleus® sound processor.
Make a splash with Aqua+
Whether you're swimming in the ocean, splashing in the pool or soaking in the bath, you want your sound processor to be safe.
Our latest cochlear implant sound processors are splash-proof, dust-proof and water resistant.*
And with Aqua+, your sound processor becomes enhanced water resistant and swimmable* as well.
Water protection for your favourite activities*
"... I'm able to take swimming lessons. I can hear my instructor underwater. Not only is it allowing me to achieve my goal that I’ve had for almost seven decades, but I’m enjoying it very much.*1
- Mary Grace, Cochlear™ Nucleus® System recipient
