"By land or by sea, for the first time in a long time I am doing things I could not do for so many years, and that has given me a great deal of confidence."

Watch Mary Grace learn to swim at 68 years old

Mary Grace is no stranger to hearing loss. In fact, she got her first Cochlear Implant in 2005 and her second just a few years ago. There's still not a day that goes by that she isn't grateful for the ability to hear again. She's often brought to tears when she realizes she can hear certain sounds, like water rippling in a swimming pool. And now, thanks to her Nucleus® Aqua+ accessory,* she's closer to that sound than ever before.


* The Nucleus 7 Sound Processor with Aqua+ is water resistant to level IP68 of the International Standard IEC60529. This water protection rating means that the sound processor with the Aqua+ can be continuously submerged under water to a depth of 3 m (9 ft and 9 in) for up to 2 hours. This water protection only applies when you use a Cochlear Standard Rechargeable Battery Module or Cochlear Compact Rechargeable Battery Module.
