    Valentin got a reaction from Jewel in Rondo2: securing replacement leash to clip   
    I'm using this one for my Rondo. it's more than enough in weight and size. I'm sure I'll have line for a few years 🙂
    I don't wait to the line broke itself, I change it every 6 months.

    Valentin got a reaction from Jewel in No disposable batteries in dry kits!   
    Mary Beth, I think they want to avoid people forget rechargeable battery (that are a serious problem) mantain  inside of dryer. New people when receive the kits are no familiar with batteries, procedures, drying. For avoid issues, MED EL, indicate neither batteries on drying, and they avoid some or a  lot of problems.

    Valentin reacted to tomseabrook in Rondo2: securing replacement leash to clip   
    I was at the clinic yesterday for routine check over and we got talking about this. Not necessarily about the breaking as I have not had that issue but the fact that it is very difficult to get the leash back on wen you change covers. The 'solution' (which should address breakages too) they use is to go back to the old fishing wire type leash (a la Rondo 1), make a loop in the end and loop it round the comms port cover, then close it. Working fine so far and won't come of when the cover needs changing.

    I never remove the clip, I retrieve the loop from the pin, It's  more easy,  I never unclip the alligator from loop. First times I forgot it, but now it is a mechanical movement 🙂

    Valentin reacted to Mary Beth in Practice sheets to use with a family member or friend   
    I am a huge fan of aural rehab as many of you know.  It helped me take my brain from static/beeps to awesome listening.  We have shared many apps and online sites here in our rehab topic.  It is also important to practice listening with live voices.  Here is a sequence of sheets to use with a family member/friend.  I trained with these sheets too.  Enjoy!

    Here is another one @Mary Beth
    https://blog.medel.com/what-is-an-individualized-cochlear-implant/
    A very cute analogy between cochleas and shoe sizes.
    However, I doubt we wear a size 8.5 on the left foot and a 9 on the right, though. We typically buy one she size or the other.
    With our cochlea's, we depend on the surgeon to measure and determine the proper implant for our left and right cochleas.
    I have a FLEX28 (28mm in the cochlea) in my right ear and a CLASSIC MEDIUM (24mm in the cochlea) in my left ear.

    Valentin got a reaction from Mary Beth in February is a great month to post what we LOVE about our CIs   
    It's no easy to select one sound. Back to sound words is described a very big WOW moment. It's not immediate, but with the time as @Jewel comment, You discover or re discover what you was losing in this world. Perhaps it is stupid but, some sound surprised to me are leaves of trees falling in autumn and roll on the ground. The rain hitting the roof or the ground.
