Wearing Cochlear Implants At The Beach | Best Aqua Accessory

By Eric Sherman

Going to the beach wearing cochlear implant processors can be challenging.  Being comfortable and protecting these expensive devices can affect your day.  Do you take off your processor going out into the water? Do you bring a special bag or case for your hearing equipment? What accessories will best secure my processors if I go out in the water or play beach volleyball?

Clipping sound processors to bathing suit top or bottom, using Velcro straps, lanyards, or swim hat can seem like an easy solution, but it can also expose your devices to simple mishaps that can potentially lead to loss or damage.  When at the beach, we’ve all seen toddlers get bumped off their feet by a rising tide, individuals getting hit by waves, or people playing physical games in the sand.  In an instant, a processor can be knocked off a person’s body.  Not properly securing your cochlear implant processors to your body can ruin your day and be quite costly.

The best accessory for cochlear implants processors at the beach is a Ci Wear shirt.  This rash guard / swim shirt is designed to secure cochlear implant sound processors, adding a layer of protection for the devices and its sound cords.  My son has been knocked around pretty hard in the waves when swimming and surfing, and the processors stayed secured inside the shirt’s pockets. In addition, special loops in the collar keep wires to the back of his head and are helpful in rapidly locating his headpiece if they become dislodged.

Avoiding the beach is a thing of the past with our son, we all now enjoy it.  Our focus is more on the activities and experiences, a lot less on his equipment.  If you or your child are looking for a more comfortable and secure wearing option for your cochlear implant processors, try Ci Wear.
