Assistive Listening Devices
The term Assistive Technology can refer to any device that helps a person with hearing loss or a voice, speech, or language disorder to communicate. These devices come in many forms ranging from Digital Wireless Accessories (DWA), FM systems… that work concordantly with your Hearing Instruments to help reduce the natural limitations that Hearing Aids have and help improve performance.
DWA- Digital Wireless Accessories
Modern hearing aid technology makes hearing and understanding in most situations enjoyable. But when you’re on the phone, watching TV or in a noisy place, following a conversation can still sometimes be frustrating. Hear better in noise or over distance, during phone calls, in class and when listening to TV and multimedia. You can connect directly with some hearing instruments or through the use of accessories get full command and control, stream phone calls and music and stream TV directly to your hearing aids.
FM Systems
The importance of FM systems for any child, teen or adult who require the best performance cannot be stated enough. This is why FM systems fall into the solutions category rather than accessories because they represent a solution to the user’s most demanding needs. Hearing while surrounded by excess noise, hearing and understanding from a distant sound source are now all made possible through the use of FM systems which connect to any Hearing Instrument or Sound Processor. Classes, lecture halls, meeting rooms and restaurants, hearing has never been made easier than with the use of an FM system.
