We help you enhance your customer experience by improving accessibility and transforming the listening experience for hard of hearing people.
Over 5% of the world’s population – or 466 million people – has a hearing loss (432 million adults and 34 million children). It is estimated that by 2050 over 900 million people – or one in every ten people – will have a hearing loss. (World Health Organisation factsheet 1 March 2020)
Hearing loss may be mild, moderate, severe, or profound. It can affect one ear or both ears and leads to difficulty in hearing conversational speech or loud sounds. We supply, install and train people on induction loops that help address this.
How does it work?
In standard mode, a hearing aid amplifies all sounds, including any background noise. In busy environments this creates challenges for users to understand speech or conversation. Induction loop systems overcome this problem. Speech is picked up through a microphone, converted to magnetic impulses by the driver and transmitted via a loop aerial. This magnetic signal is picked up by the telecoil within hearing aids and converted back to speech.
