Assisted Hearing / Induction Loop
Assisted hearing systems or induction loops provide an enhanced sound quality for people who have reduced hearing capacity and wear hearing aids.
Assisted hearing systems or induction loops as they are generally called, provide an enhanced sound quality for people who have reduced hearing capacity and wear hearing aids.
This is a special type of sound system. The loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting.
The hearing loop consists of a microphone to pick up the spoken word; an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a wire placed around the perimeter of a specific area i.e. a meeting room, a church, a service counter etc to act as an antenna that radiates the magnetic signal to the hearing aid.
It’s estimated that 1 in 6 people have some form of hearing loss and unfortunately, these loop systems are not always installed and configured correctly, however we do pride ourselves on the quality of system that we can design and implement. Having a correctly working system, can make a huge difference to people who require it.
