“Not being able to hear in large meeting rooms or at church, for example, get worse as we get older. While today’s digital hearing devices are great at enhancing hearing in conversational, informal settings, the change in speech processing is not something we can fix with hearing aids alone. Hearing Loops improve hearing devices better; Hearing Loops double the performance and features of the device through technology that is simple to use, universal and in many cases easy to install.”
—Dr. Juliëtte Sterkens, AuD.
We are working hard to loop the Southeastern United States, and to your benefit! As we continue to install hearing loops, more and more people are learning about this technology. Their family members, friends, and colleagues will be more eager to have hearing aids that have T-Coils. Those who do NOT have T-Coils will be coming to you for upgrades or even new sets.
We understand it takes about two years for a person to get a pair of hearing aids after their audiogram results in significant loss of hearing like the example above. Those people may be quicker to buy their set once they hear how clear it is to hear in a hearing loop.
We look forward to promoting the audiologist who is hearing loop friendly in the cities and towns we work.
People who cannot hear cannot help. Not being able to understand what is heard affects a person’s ability to pass a class, understand a sermon, complete a job, and many other scenarios. Those who understand can participate and be included, and hearing loops promote inclusivity.
For large rooms, there is no better assistive listening technology than a hearing loop. As a team of professional installers, we ask that you, the audiologist, help us by promoting hearing loops and activating your patients’ T-Coils. It is to their benefit and coming from you, it would be but a short educational opportunity for them.
Let’s get in the loop and make this sign more persuasive!
