Enjoy water with Aqua+

With the Cochlear Nucleus Aqua+ they won’t have to be a fish out of water.

Cochlear Nucleus Aqua+

The Aqua+ is a soft, flexible silicone sleeve that fits over a CP810 or CP900 series processor. When used with the Aqua+ Coil, your child can enjoy water activities where additional protection is needed.

A water protection rating of IP68 is your invitation to get wet without cumbersome cases or annoying cables – the Aqua+ sits comfortably on the ear and can be submerged under 3 metres of water for up to 2 hours.

Watch the video to see how easy it is to use.

“It’s awesome”
The first time ten year old Ben was able to hear in the water using the Aqua+ was an emotional experience for his mum Karen. Click here for their story.
