What Is Included With The BAHA?
« on: November 22, 2010, 09:54:40 am »

Keith,

I can tell you what came with mine, but that was almost 3 years ago, so it might have changed slightly.

I got the processor (of course), a package of batteries, a case to store the processor in, a jar of drying beads, a very soft toothbrush to clean the processor and abutment, a "leash" (basically a piece of fishing line with a clip on it so you can attach the line to your processor and the clip to your shirt so if it gets knocked off your head, you won't lose it),  a little plastic thing so others can try to see what you hear when you have your BAHA on, and a little snap on cap that matches your processor that you can put on the abutment if you don't wear the processor.  It keeps the abutment clean and also helps to hide the shiny silver thing stuck in the side of your head.  I don't use mine.

As far as accessories, you can go right to the Cochlear Americas website and they have a list of what is available and the prices.  My audiologist in Nashville also had some stocked at their office, but I don't think that's common.

Link to the Cochlear online store https://webstore.cochlear.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpSctDspRte.jsp?a=b

The BP100 (aka BP3) comes with a "leash", a Cochlear toothbrush, extra battery covers (4 or 5, I think), an instruction booklet written in several languages, a package of batteries, cap that matches the processor, and a plastic "thingy" so you can demonstrate the BAHA to others who can hear.  There's also a small case to store the processor inside a larger box filled with the aforementioned stuff.

I'm not sure it comes with a jar of drying beads.  I have one, but I think I got it with my Divino. 

Drying beads are good to have though.  A Dry and Store is also a good idea.  I haven't purchase one yet, but plan to very soon.  http://www.dryandstore.com/

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways

I recently went to a Baha event at Oak Brook Terrance, Illiniois earlier this month and this is what I got.  This is suppose to be latest aftercare kit.  It comes with a battery tester, Baha wipes, small folding mirror, little booklet with CD on how to do's...., soft abutment brush (looks like a soft toothbrush), and a stiffer brush to clean the post on the Baha.

BTW, by BAHA kit from Cochlear DID come with a drying jar with beads.  I am going to check out the other options as well, though.
