WHY AN INDUCTION LOOP ?
In a noisy environment, or one in which reverberations and echoes are noticeable, we all find it difficult at times to hear and understand what is said. But for a person with impaired hearing , wearing a hearing aid it can be almost impossible hear under these conditions. It is for thses reasons that more attention is now being given to assisting hearing aid users by instaling induction loops AT THE WORKPLACE, IN SCHOOLS, PUBLIC HALLS, CHURCHES, THEATRES andmany other PUBLIC PLACES. The new section M of the Uk building regualtions also specifies the need for such systems.
Perhaps the greatest advantage is the sound comes in a pure, undistorted form.
WHAT IS AN INDUCTION LOOP AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Most hearing aids today have a switch marked M and T. Some even have M, MT and T. The M (microphone) position is for normal listening via airborne sound. The T (telecoil) position is for receieving the sound via an induction coil built into the hearing aid. The MT position allows listening to both airborne sound and the induction loop. For the coil to work a magnetic field is needed to generate the sound - this is provided by the loop system.
An induction loop system consists of an amplifier and a loop. The amplifier can be connected to a sound source such as a TV or radio, a PA system or a dedicated microphone. It the amplifies the sound and sends it out in the form of an alternating current throught the loop. The loop itself consists of a correctly sized insulated wire positioned in the correct place around the perimeter of the room.
