Ci Wear Inspiration

"Less worry about our son's cochlear implant processors and more time playing!"

Our Story

Our son Cole, who has bilateral cochlear implants, was the inspiration behind Ci Wear.


Cole loves swimming and we were excited when he received his new waterproof cochlear implant processors. As we watched him in the water, we noticed he spent a lot of time attending to his processors and headpieces, instead of playing. We searched for different wearing options to minimize the issues he was having. After extensive research, we developed the Ci Wear shirt.


Ci Wear secures and adds a layer of protection to help prevent devices and their cords from being tangled or dislodged. Our shirt is designed to simplify your experience when wearing your device, so you can focus on your activity and not your equipment.


We hope Ci Wear provides you the same improved experience during activities as it has given our son.
