HEARING INDUCTION LOOP SOLUTIONS
How does the Induction loop system work?
An induction loop is a cable that goes around the listening area. A current from a loop amplifier powers the cable. The amplifier gets its signal from a direct connection with another sound source. This can be, for example, a microphone placed in front of the person speaking or connection to an existing multi-media system ( PA system, laptop, DVD etc ). The resulting electric current in the Induction loop produces a magnetic field that matches the sound. You can then pick up this magnetic field if you are sitting within the area of the Induction loop and your hearing aid - or Induction loop listening aid - is switched to the 'T’ - telecoil setting. You can adjust your own hearing aid for volume in the usual way.
How is an Induction loop system used?
If you have a hearing aid with a 'T' setting, you simply need to switch to 'T'. If you do not have a suitable hearing aid you can still use an Induction loop, but you will also need a 'Induction loop listener'. Some Induction loop listeners are small boxes with headphones - others are worn as an earpiece.
More than one person can benefit from an Induction loop installed in a room as long as they each have their hearing aids set to 'T' or they are using Induction loop listeners. You are not wired to any other equipment so you are free to move around and listen from anywhere within the Induction loop.
