Make a splash with Aqua+
Whether swimming in the ocean, jumping into the pool or soaking in the bath, adults and children want their sound processor to be safe.
Our latest Nucleus® sound processors are splash-proof, dust-proof and water resistant.*
And with the Aqua+ silicone sleeve, the sound processor becomes waterproof 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.
- Mary Grace, Cochlear™ implant recipient
