It started with a simple need to improve a deaf child’s experience in the water, a specialty shirt designed to conceal a cochlear implant processor and its wires to help protect against entanglement, dislodgement and snags during sports and recreational activities in and out of the water.
Founded in 2012 by a parent of a special needs child who needed a comfortable wearing option to better secure and protect his child’s expensive cochlear implant processors - Ci Wear is the originator of performance apparel - gear toward active individuals and athletes who need to wear hearing devices or like to stay connected to a mobile device throughout the course of an activity or workout. The patented design behind Ci Wear’s shirt is to integrate your device into the apparel to help protect against damage or loss.
Ci Wear’s mission is to design comfortable, stylish and functional apparel that empowers an individual to participate or enhances their experience when needing to wear a hearing device.
As an audiologist, I want the security of knowing that my cochlear implant patients can hear in all activities and that their implant processors are safe and protected. When my patients use Ci Wear, I know that, whether they are in the pool, on the basketball court, on the ski slopes, or on the soccer field, they can use their implant processors with ease and protection. The thought and care that has gone into the design of Ci Wear makes these shirts the perfect “accessory” for active implant users.
