Nucleus Babyworn – Good or Bad?

It has been a few months since Cochlear released the Nucleus Babyworn System that allows infants to use the Freedom BTE controller by attaching the processor to their clothing.

We are curious as to what percentage of parents are preferring this method over the traditional way which is to use the bodyworn controller until the child is able to wear the BTE comfortably on their ears.

Some parents have reported that their infants are able to pull the processor off the clips of the Babyworn. We have not noticed any change in order levels for our shirts. This would suggest that parents are still preferring the bodyworn controllers for their infants.

Please Post comments of your own personal experiences.  Many others will benefit from what you may have to say! 🙂

As previously noted, Cochlear is about to release the Babyworn accessory for the Nucleus Freedom. This will enable the BTE controller to be worn on the small ears of babies with a small controller that will attach to the baby’s clothing in a variety of ways.

Cochlear is making the Babyworn system available to children born after April 11, 2002 for free. They will be sending out postcards announcing this offer.

Is this going to be the end of the Nucleus BodyWorn System, or will parents still prefer the Bodyworn over the BTE for young children?
