Keeping BTE Cochlear Implant on ear....

Other than a staple gun or super glue, I'd love to know how the rest of you manage to keep your child's BTE cochlear implant on their head. This is how we've been so prone to losing Trey's (it dangles, he gets annoyed and eventually either takes it off, or it falls off). We tried using an ear mold, and it was better than nothing, but still only kept it on his head about 50% of the time. We're now trying a "huggy", which is a think piece of tubing that attaches to the earpiece, and then wraps around the ear, attaching, on the other end, to the battery. So far, I think I like it. But, I'd love to know if you have something that is really working GREAT!

The freedom (by cochlear) is now coming out with a product called snugfit which is like a huggie only better. We don't need to use it though since Ethan's glasses do a good job of holding on the BTE. We just just tuck them behind the arms of his frames.

Has anyone tried Ear Gear (gearforears.com)? Our audi recommended them for Nolan's hearing aids, and I saw that the company has CI processer "socks," too. The cords might help, but I don't know if an older kid might balk at wearing cords attached to their shirt.

Neither huggies or snugfit works for us. Our first son had malformed ears so we discovered double sided tape in the walmart's sewing dept for 1.92 a roll called Res-Q-Tape. Works like a charm. My daughter wouldn't use the other products and wanted her tape back because they don't flop or move, nor do they fall in the mud/toilet/swimming pool, you get the idea. We're sticking w/that.I'll try to take some shots of it and post on my blog later today.

Hi there, I'm a teacher of the deaf and one of my three-year old students is transitioning from a body-worn to BTE processor. I'm googled everything I can come up with to find where I can buy a Huggie or Snugfit, and I can't seem to find out! Any recommendations? SarahBrandt@beverlyschoolforthedeaf.org

Many thanks!

I'm the kind of hombre who loves to seek different things. Right now I'm making my own pv panels. I'm managing it all by myself without the aid of my men. I'm utilizing the internet as the only path to acheive this. I ran across a really awesome site that explains how to build photovoltaic panels and wind generators. The website explains all the steps involved in building photovoltaic panels.

I'm not really sure about how correct the information given there iz. If some guys over here who had experience with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the site it will be great and I would extremely appreciate it, cause I truly lav solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. You guys rock.
