Extra security when it is needed

We design sound processors to be comfortable and secure no matter what adults or children are doing.

But sometimes, individuals want reassurance that they won't lose their sound processor, especially during high-energy activities like skiing or playing football. Or if they are a parent who wants peace of mind that their child won't lose his or her sound processor.
