Audiologists & Hearing Aid Dispensers

Help your patients’ hear better – using their existing hearing devices.   Audio Frequency Induction Loop systems (Hearing Loops) send sound directly to hearing aids and cochlear implants that are equipped with manually-operated telecoils.

Hearing Loops

  • Increase patient satisfaction with their current hearing device
  • Receive sound, set to the patients’ hearing devices’ custom settings
  • Eliminate the need for Direct Audio Input cabling
  • Do not drain the battery of the hearing aid or cochlear implant
  • Offer a more cost-effective, compatible, assistive listening system (than either FM or Infrared systems)
  • Minimize the need for receiver headsets by system users

Consider this…

You already know that even with hearing aids or cochlear implants (CIs), your patients need more; because these personal amplification devices – alone – can’t deliver clear sound in every instance. Why is this?

“All hearing aids and all CIs use microphones. Product schematics will confirm that the microphone is the first component followed by sound processors that are fully dependent upon microphone input. And all microphones have three annoying characteristics: they pick up what is loudest, they pick up what is closest and they have absolutely no idea which sound is important to the listener,” Read More.

Considering the limits of hearing aids when used at a distance, we at POW recommend Hearing Loop assistive listening systems, to help your patients get the most out of their hearing aids and cochlear implants.

At POW, we can install a Hearing Loop in your office, and demonstrate to your customers what they have to offer. Working together, we can bring back your client’s love of listening to TV, music, phone, and conversations in vehicles. This cost-effective Assistive Listening System deserves to be used by everyone!

Hearing Loops and a best kept secret – telecoils

Did you know that 80% of hearing aids, and 100% of cochlear implants come equipped with telecoils, which, if activated, can be used as an inexpensive magnetic receptor, allowing listeners to link directly into hearing loop inductive listening systems?

For expert advice on how to set telecoils to orient for optimal use in a hearing loop, Read More.

Did you know that in the USA, the states of New York, Florida, and Arizona require their licensed audiologists and hearing aid dispensers to educate their customers about telecoil technology? It shouldn’t take a law to make this happen, but in Canada there is yet no legal requirement to help hearing aid consumers learn about this amazing technology.

That’s where POW, and Hearing Care Professionals, can make all the difference! Please educate yourself about telecoils, and offer your customers valuable choices for increasing their satisfaction with their existing hearing aids and cochlear implants.

As explained so well by Juliette P.M. Sterkin AuD, in the this Telecoil and Hearing Loop Essentials Guide for Practitioners, you will see how getting your practice and patients in the loop can make a significant, positive difference in the lives of your customers.

We at POW would love to talk with you about how your clinic can showcase the amazing benefits of Hearing Loops to your patients; and joining national ‘Let’s Loop’ movements, such as this one in Utah.

Together – let’s Make Life Hearing Friendly, for your practice, and your patients.
