I go under the knife on Wednesday. At my conference last week with my audiologist, she made sure I understood the mechanics of all the CI, including the magnet. She gave me sort of a stunned look when I asked, "If I'm not wearing the processor, can I wear a refrigerator magnet?" We have an assortment of them,  including a cow and a magnetized church key (also known to the beerless as a "bottle opener").  I can't be the first to think of this as a fashion statement for when I'm not wearing the processor. What do others use?

I was thinking of finding something to wear on top of the coil. I sent my audiologist photos of childrens stickers,  and she was delighted with the idea. I like the idea to enhance the look of the coil. I fancy a thin wood carving. You could probably stick it to the magnet with silicone. I think there's a good business for someone.

Wishing you the best!  Which processor are you choosing?

Med-El internal Synchrony magnets are unique.  They are not like regular magnets.  Regular magnets (like refrigerator magnets) have a top and bottom charge.  Synchrony magnets have a split left and right charge which allows them to rotate (which is why they can withstand stronger MRIs).

I will not place any magnet near my internal magnet except for the ones supplied by Med-El.

Wishing the the very best.

There are companies that make decals for the coils and for the entire processor.  Check out

You can even design your own images.

There are other companies as well.
