An induction loop, also known as a hearing loop or T-Loop, is a listening support system for people with a hearing impairment. It takes a sound source and transfers it directly to a hearing aid without background noise.
- The sound signal is transferred to an audio Induction Loop Amplifier which generates a current to pass the signal to an induction loop, usually made of multiple turns of copper wire.
- The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting’.
- The hearing aid tailors the sound to the specific needs of the individual. Sound is delivered directly into the ear canal, without background noise and with the full spectrum of sound frequencies required for intelligibility.
- The induction range is 2 feet so the hearing aid must be within that distance. If you are also trying keep the intercom compliant for wheel chair access then the call button on whatever intercom this is used with must be no higher than 48 inches.
