Induction loop portable kits and mics - current product range:
The Disability Discrimination Act (UK) states that any business or organisation providing a product or service to the general public are required to install induction loop or infrared systems where it is possible or unreasonably difficult for a deaf or hard of hearing person to make use of a service. Furthermore, British Standard BS8300 (new code of practice for the design of new buildings and how they meet the needs of disabled people), says that a hearing enhancement service, for example an induction loop, should be installed in rooms and areas used for lectures, meetings, classes, etc.
How an Induction Loop system works: It allows a hearing aid user to receive signals picked up and transmitted directly to the hearing aid telecoil (T position), so that a person with impaired hearing will be able to overcome the difficulties of a noisy environment or poor acoustic space and hear more clearly. The loop is an insulated thin wire whch runs all around the perimeter of the room to be served, the size of the field required can vary depending on the application. The induction loop is severed by a driver amplifier which is fed from a microphone and/or sound amplification system.
