Cochlear Americas Announces New Products for the Pediatric Market

Denver, CO -- July 23, 2007 -- Cochlear Americas today announced the availability of three new pediatric solutions designed to enhance the hearing experience of Cochlear's youngest implant users. Babyworn' Accessory Pack + Babyworn' Cable, Freedom Snugfit', and the BTE Tamper-Resistant Battery Holder and Removal Tool provide babies, toddlers and children unsurpassed comfort, security and freedom.

The new accessories are unique in that they have been developed especially for our smallest recipients. Numerous safety features and soft, light-weight materials help deliver a comfortable, uninterrupted hearing experience for these young cochlear implant users, said Chris Smith, President, Cochlear Americas. Moreover, these accessories have been designed to grow with the user and are meant for long-lasting wear.

Babyworn' Accessory Pack + Babyworn' Cable

The Babyworn' Accessory Pack + Babyworn' Cable is a dedicated baby wearing solution that addresses retention and comfort issues normally associated with such products. Babyworn is the best pediatric offering for children of all ages as it allows the recipient to grow into his or her Freedom system. Babyworn is ideal for children with small ears as it reduces the (BTE) size and weight. Babyworn provides two flexible wearing options: a single controller-standard BTE configuration and an upper body configuration.

The Freedom Snugfit

The Freedom Snugfit helps children to keep processors and microphones in the most natural position on the ear. Consisting of an upper ear hook, main body and lower ear hook, Snugfit keeps the sound processor in place, providing parents and caregivers confidence their child is receiving an optimal, uninterrupted hearing experience. Snugfit's adjustable upper and lower ear hooks ensure this optimal fit, while soft, durable unit material provides all-day comfort. The lower hook on the Snugfit comes in beige, brown and black to match the wearers skin and be less conspicuous. The Snugfit will be included as part of the pediatric option bundle.

Behind the Ear (BTE) Tamper-Resistant Battery Holder

The design of the BTE Tamper-Resistant Battery Holder makes it more difficult for young children to access, remove or lose batteries. It is available in two sizes so that both BTE and Freedom Mini BTE recipients are able to use the product. A key ring pulling tool is also provided to enable easy removal by parents and caregivers.

All accessories are available for purchase online or by calling 1 (800) 523-5798 (Voice and TDD) Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. 5:30 p.m. Mountain Time.
