Extra security when needed

We design sound processors to be comfortable and secure no matter what an adult or child is doing.

But sometimes, adults and children want reassurance that they won't lose them, especially during high-energy activities like running or playing football. Or maybe a parent wants peace of mind that their child won't lose his or her sound processor.

Cochlear™ accessories can help keep the processor in place.
