Why Loop?

Examine your environment and ask yourself:
  • How often does my organization interact with the public?
  • What percentage of those people are 55 or older?
  • Is our staff able to tell who is hearing impaired? 
  • How many points of contact are there in my organization’s public spaces?
  • How important are those interactions to my success?

There are many scenarios where a Hearing Loop can make a difference between a successful interaction and a negative experience, from schools, museums, theaters and retail businesses to senior living communities, audiologists and hospitals. 
 
  • Over 48 million people in America suffer from some form of hearing loss. [Johns Hopkins Medicine, 2011]
  • As described in the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 2010 and endorsed by the US Department of Justice (DOJ), the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) and the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), a Hearing Loop is the only effective means of delivering audio directly to a hearing aid – by way of a ‘T-Coil’ which acts as an antenna.
  • 84 percent of HLAA members report having T-coils in their hearing aids.
  • Induction Loop installations have doubled in number over the past three years to over 5,000 locations in the United States. 
  • Hearing loops are cost-effective, seamless, unobtrusive, easy to use, require no special equipment, have low battery drain and conform to a universal standard (IEC 60118-4).
