Induction loop systems have been around for a long time. It used to be that you would have only used them at hospitals. Now, due to the advances in technology a T’ Coil Hearing Aid Loop System can be used practically anywhere.
What exactly is a T’ Coil induction loop system?
An induction loop system transmits an audio signal directly into a hearing aid via the creation of a magnetic field, greatly reducing background noise, competing sounds, reverberation and other acoustic distortions that reduce the clarity of sound.
For this system to work you must ensure that your hearing aids have what is called a telecoil or a “T” setting. Only hearing aids with this setting can pick up the magnetic field being transmitted.
Where can the portable induction loop kit be used.
Rather than the older system (some of which are still in place) which involved the transmitter and a wire loop going right round the room or building, the TC192 Portable Induction loop kit can be used practically anywhere.
Because there is no hard wired installation required, this loop system is ideal for use in places such as, schools, shops, nursing homes, leisure centres, hotels, banks, GP surgeries, reception desks and many other private, public and civic areas. Pretty much anywhere.
Who would benefit from the portable induction loop kit.
The most obvious beneficiary of this induction loop system is the hearing aid user. They will enjoy a greatly enhanced hearing experience without background interference. The biggest benefit comes from use in busy areas such as reception rooms, schools etc… The induction loop allows hearing aid users to hear clearly without distraction.
The other beneficiaries of the portable induction loop system would be any business or public body who deal with people on a day to day basis. The vast majority of these places now have a loop system (the old style) in place for hearing aid users.
For instance, up until now, a school that has a number of hearing aid wearing children, would pretty much have to hard wire the complete school at a phenomenal cost. This portable system would allow each child to carry their loop kit from class to class.
Likewise a a hotel could have one of these systems sitting at reception, rather than having to hardwire the whole reception area. In terms of business and bodies who deal with the public this portable system could be a real money saver.

The easiest way to meet the requirements of the hearing impaired is to have a portable induction loop system available and ready to use at all times. Whether you are a business dealing with customers, a school with a duty to your hard of hearing pupils or a state body providing a service to the public, having a loop system in place shows that you care.
As someone who wears hearing aids permanently, I know the difference it makes to me when an induction loop system is provided for my use. It shows me that the providers of the service care about my needs. It shows me that they are aware of and interested in making my experience the very best it can be. That goes a long way to ensuring that I will be a returning customer.
