With Cochlear's sound processor water-safe accessories, neither you nor your child have to miss out on being in or around water.

Make a splash with the Aqua+ accessories

Everyone is drawn to the water, whether it's swimming in the ocean or spending time in the pool. It’s understandable that you might feel you need to stay away from water to protect your sound processor. Our latest Osia® Sound Processor and Nucleus® Sound Processors are splash-proof and dust-proof as well as water resistant.**

And with the Aqua+ reusable silicone sleeve, your sound processor becomes waterproof** as well.
