Induction Loop Systems – Assistive Hearing Technologies
Are your presentations heard clearly by everyone in the audience?
Do you have individuals who require hearing assistance systems?
What is an Induction Loop System?
Loop systems are the more popular form of an assistive hearing system.
This technology does not require individuals to wear specific equipment or ask to borrow communal devices.
The hearing loop assists individuals who use hearing aids that are equipped with t-coils, to hear sounds from a PA system transmitted
directly to their hearing aid.
How do loop systems do this?
It can reduce or eliminate the background noise, which allows those with hearing difficulties to hear what they are supposed to be hearing crystal clear.
How does the Induction Loop System work?
First, the spoken word is picked up by a microphone and the sound from the microphone is then sent through an amplifier.
This amplifier then sends the sound through the induction loop and wire. The induction loop and wire are placed around the perimeter of a room.
The induction loop and wire act like an antenna, which sends the magnetic signal directly to the individual’s hearing aid.
