A hearing loop typically consists of a physical loop of specialised cable placed under the floor coverings around a designated area, usually a room or a building, and an amplifier attached to the PA system. The cable generates a magnetic wireless signal that can be picked up by a telecoil enabled hearing aid, cochlear implant (CI) processors, and specialised hand‐held hearing loop receivers for individuals without telecoil compatible hearing aids.
A hearing loop should be designed and installed by a specialist in this field. Loop design, amplifier strength and cable placement are vital to maintaining signal strength and consistent coverage. Electromagnetic interference, including from items such as metal objects, fluorescent lighting and other hearing augmentation in the area can all affect the performance of an induction loop. Too many induction loops are installed without proper consideration for the room’s environment, resulting in a hearing loop that does not work as required. We provide testing equipment with our induction loops and teach you to test your hearing loop regularly.
If your existing hearing loop is not working as intended, has been damaged or you would like to know if it is working, we can provide an onsite assessment of this.
