Implant and pressure?


I’m looking at getting myself an implant, and just have the one roadblock ahead of me.
How does the implant (specifically the air within the glass encasing) deal with atmospheric pressure changes, i.e. Diving and similar activities? Any significant risk of breakage or such?
Also, I’m curious as to how much air is actually in the glass, if anyone has a clue.

EDIT: To clarify, the pressure as far as rec diving goes typically does not exceed 5 bar / 75 psi, so the compression factor will peak at around 5x.

Thanks ^^

TL;DR - you’re fine :slight_smile:

Awesome, thank you very much ^^
Have you got the exact dimensions of the capsule’s exterior and glass thickness for the xNT? #JustCurious

2.1mm diameter by approximately 12mm long +/- 0.1mm

Thickness is approx 0.3mm - 0.5mm depending on model. The xNT is 0.3mm thick.

Wonderful, thanks a bunch!
