We are bringing clarity and understanding to the hard of hearing through:
CUSTOM-DESIGNED INDUCTION LOOP SYSTEMS for:
PLACES OF WORSHIP AUDITORIUMS THEATRES HOMES
To enhance the listening experience for the hard of hearing, by installing: Induction Loop Systems wherever needed.
WHAT IS AN INDUCTION LOOP SYSTEM ?
The Induction Loop System is an assistive hearing system for hearing aid wearers, that helps bring clarity and understanding in noisier environments,
such as a sanctuary, auditorium, theatre or even a tv room. Once installed the system compliments any hearing aid equipped with a telecoil, by bringing words directly from the PA sytem, without environmental interference.
WHY ARE ASSISTIVE SYSTEMS NEEDED ?
Places of Worship, schools, businesses and other public buildings have for many years made themselves accessible to the handicapped in wheelchairs. Now for a reasonable cost, facilities can make themselves accessible to the 36 million
Americans that have hearing loss. With over 8 million Americans already that wear hearing aids, those aids could double as customized loudspeakers with the installation of an Induction Loop System.
WHY ARE INDUCTION LOOP SYSTEMS PREFERRED ?
- THEY DELIVER PERSONALIZED IN-THE-EAR SOUND . . . CUSTOMIZED BY ONE'S OWN HEAARING AID.
- ARE HEARING AID COMPATIBLE. NO NEED TO JUGGLE BETWEEN HEARING AIDS AND HEADSETS.
- WORK IN TRANSIENT SITUATIONS. THEY CAN SERVE THE HARD OF HEARING IN MANY VENUES.
- ARE INCONSPICUOUS. IT OFFERS AN EASY AND INVISIBLE SOLUTION.
- OPERATE ON A UNIVERSAL FREQUENCY.
- DON'T REQUIRE PURCHASING/MAINTAINING/REPLACING PORTABLE RECEIVING UNITS.
- PRECLUDES BOTHERING OTHERS NEARBY WITH SOUNDS LEAKING FROM HEADSETS.
- DON'T REQUIRE PICK UP AND RETURN OF PORTABLE RECEIVING UNITS AND HEADSETS.
WORLD-WIDE USE OF LOOP SYSTEMS
Loop Systems have a widespread use throughout Northern Europe. Soon London
will have all of its taxis and Underground ticket windows, and most of its churches and cathedrals looped. The first international "Hearing Loops" conference hosted in 2009 by the European Federation of Hard of Hearing People with attendees from 15 countries adopted a resolution that all manufacturers and suppliers of hearing aids and cochlear implants shall communicate the benefits of telecoil receivers and assistive listening devices, and educate people who are hard of hearing accordingly. In the USA they have realized that the more facilities that have Induction Loop Systems, the greater the accessibility to the hard of hearing to hear better.
We provide installation of Induction Loop Systems in every venue. Every Loop
installation conforms to the IEC 60118-2006*, and are tested and certified.
*"The looping conformity to IEC 60118-2006, will ensure the highest quality of performance for looping systems."Patricia Kricos, PhD, Pres. - American Academy of Audiology, and Co-chair of' the HLAA/Academy Joint Task Force on Looping.
