Summer’s here! It’s time to dive into the water!

I am dying of heat already!  I’m ready to head to the beach and jump into the waves!

So, what do we do with our processors while we swim in the water?  Well, from my personal past experiences, I’ve used the Aquapack, and this thing is a miracle!  I put the processors inside the pack when I have to go in the water, and NOT a SINGLE drop of water and sand went inside the pack!

Two years ago, I went on a hiking trip with a group in Israel, and, we had to do some swimming in the lakes and rivers. Of course, I was NOT going to go without hearing during the entire hike. So, I put the processors in the Aquapack when I had to swim and wore the pack on my arm.  The processor was still sparklingly clean when I took it out of the pack!  MIRACLE!

Have fun and be safe!

Don’t know how you find time to write and share your keen observations about your experiences. I really enjoy reading everything. I’m getting psyched up for a simultaneous bi-CI implant surgery in one month. I need to get an alarm clock and also I am fascinated about the aquapack because I work in inclimate weather sometimes. I checked out the link you provided and they do have a myriad of cases, wow! They even had one for just for CI’s , but it was a belt style. Which one do you use that allows you to connect the cord? Have a great trip this summer.

Hi! My daughter has a cochlear implant and is having her second one programmed on Monday. We would love to be able to take her into the water and her still hear us. Can you give me more information about how this worked for you and which one you purchased? How do you keep the coil on, etc?

Thanks!
