February 24th, 2014 by | Tags: , , , | 1 Comment »

Cochlear announced on their website several weeks ago that they are releasing a new Aqua Accessory known as Aqua+ that is designed much better than the first Aqua Accessory.  Here is more information about Aqua+ that comes from Cochlear in New Zealand.

The Aqua + will be CP900 and CP810 compatible.

This product is NOT currently available in Australia or New Zealand - Australia & New Zealand will aim to launch this product within the coming months dependant on product availability.

Some more information can be found below:

Q: What is the Aqua+?
A: The Aqua+ is a soft, flexible silicone sleeve that fits over an existing CP810 or CP900 series processor. When used with the Aqua+ Coil, it allows CI recipients to participate in water activities where additional protection is needed.

Q: Is the Aqua+ waterproof?
A: Yes. The Aqua+ has achieved an IP68 ingress protection rating in 3 metres of still water for 2 hours. Cochlear also performed extensive “real life” testing to simulate bathing in soapy water and swimming inchlorinated or salt water.

Q: Which processor(s) is it compatible with?
A: The Aqua+ is designed to work with Nucleus 6 CP910 or CP920 processors and the Nucleus 5 CP810 processor with rechargeable batteries only.

Q: Can I use my regular coil and coil cable with the Aqua+?
A: No, the Aqua+ should only be used with the specified Aqua+ Coil. This integrated coil-cable is designed specifically for underwater swimming in all water types, while your standard coil and coil cable are not.

Q: Can people re-use the Aqua+?
A: Yes, the Aqua+ sleeve is tested for up to 50 reuses. Cochlear recommends replacing the Aqua+ sleeve every 50 uses or if the Aqua+ sleeve becomes worn or damaged. The Aqua+ Coil is tested for up to 180 uses. Individual results will vary depending on frequency, duration and type of use.

I asked about this water kit to the on line store and they told me it’s no longer available. Is it available again?
