An induction loop system provides assistance to people with a hearing impairment, they are often required in public spaces under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) regulations and they may be either portable or permanently installed.

Induction Loop Systems

Induction loop systems work by transmitting audio signals directly into the hearing aid via a magnetic field. In general terms, an induction loop system has a loop of wire around the edge of an area which is connected to an induction loop amplifier. This amplifier drives an audio current through the loop which is clearly picked up by anyone wearing a hearing aid that is switched to the T (telecoil) setting.

Infra Red Audio Systems

Infra red audio systems are an alternative to induction loops. Using IR light based technology; audio signals can be radiated around a room or area to a recipient using a dedicated receiver. The receivers come in the form of either a standard headset which can be worn by anyone regardless of their hearing capabilities, or a special receiver which connects to a small neck worn loop designed to be used by the Hearing Aid user.
