In normal use, hearing aids utilise a microphone for amplifying localised speech. Whilst this is effective for local conversations and quiet environments it is less effective for listening to speech or music at a distance or in front of a security screen at a ticket counter. This is because the hearing aids microphone also picks up any background noise and unwanted speech from other conversations. An induction loop system works by moving the required sound closer to hearing aid via the hearing aids telecoil which is activated by turning it to the “T” or “MT” position.
Telecoils are fitted as standard to most hearing aids so induction loops can be considered
Induction loop systems help hearing impaired people who use a hearing aid or loop listener to hear sounds more clearly by reducing or cutting out background noise.
An induction loop is a cable that circles the listening area. It is fed by current
from a loop amplifier. The amplifier gets its signal from a microphone placed in
front of the person speaking or by means of a direct connection from another sound
source, such as a sound system. The resulting electric current in the loop produces
a magnetic field, which corresponds to the sound. You can then pick up this magnetic
field if you are sitting within the area of the loop and your hearing aid -
More than one person can benefit from a loop installed in a room as long as they each have a hearing aid set to 'T', or a loop listener.
You are not wired to any other equipment and you are therefore free to listen from anywhere within the loop and to move around.
Induction loops are properly termed AFILS which stands for Audio-
In the UK the installation of an induction loop system is governed by BS7594.
