Approval for new Implant Processor

Cochlear implant maker Advanced Bionics says it has approval from regulators in the US and Canada to start selling its waterproof sound processor. The Neptune can be used when swimming or bathing and worn "in the hair, on an arm, under a collar, in a pocket." At the same time, Advanced Bionics is facing lawsuits in 4 states over its bionic ear cochlear implant after issuing a recall for the HiRes90K a year ago after reports of malfunctions and pain by some patients.
