Singapore: The Hearing Solution Group, Southeast Asia's largest Hearing Care Company, has launched the Neptune Sound Processor, the world's first and only waterproof cochlear implant sound processor from Advanced Bionics (AB), the global leader in cochlear implant technology.
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.
