A patient shared his recent swim with us….
I don’t think we can claim that my hearing aids are waterproof yet, without more testing, but I accidentally wore mine while doing 44 laps in the Rec. Center Pool yesterday. I opened the battery door, when I noticed that I had them in, and they did not work immediately when I closed it. But I let them sit for 2 hours while I did some stuff, and when I next closed the battery doors, I got 10 beeps from each one. I was pleasantly surprised. I gave them a good work out when I went for an hour walk while listening to music. The Resound LiNX hearing aids worked fine!
Such a great story! Thank you for sharing this as we are pleased with current hearing devices and their Gore Tex protection against moisture!…. even though they shouldn’t be taken swimming… 🙂
