The Hearing Solution Group - Southeast Asia's largest Hearing Care Company
- has launched the Neptune(TM) Sound Processor, the world's first and only
waterproof cochlear implant sound processor from Advanced Bionics (AB), the
global leader in cochlear implant technology.
The launch event was held at the new "The Port of the Lost World" water
park in Sentosa Island, featuring a signature theme of "Pirate Ship" water play
area. Several AB cochlear implant users participated in the event, using their
Neptune Sound Processors in the pools, showers and foam pools, all while
hearing their parents and peers.
Fully intended for swimming and bathing, Neptune is designed to help
cochlear implant recipients hearing both in and out of the water. Recipients
using other products on the market have to remove their processor when they
swim or bathe, which means they miss out on important safety instructions and
opportunities for language development because they are not hearing during
those times. Developed for all weather, terrain, ages and lifestyles, Neptune
allows recipients to enjoy an abundance of water and sports activities to its
durable and waterproof design. Parents of pediatric recipients will appreciate
the bonding and learning that comes with hearing during bath time, as well as
the safety of hearing in the pool.
Cochlear implant users in Singapore were given free trials of the Neptune
Sound Processor to test in the waterpark. For the first time, these users were
able to swim and hear at the same time.
