New Service Offering: The Looping Solution

Maximize your hearing aid’s potential at home and in public places with “The Looping Solution”.  Looping turns a hearing aid into a direct receiver of a sound system.  Looping transmits the signal from a microphone or sound system through a wire that is installed around the listening area. The loop signal is picked up by a small coil of wire inside the hearing aid, called a t-coil. The signal from the loop plays through the customized hearing aid programming giving as close to true sound reproduction as possible with an assistive device.  It eliminates background noise and echoes.

Looping is affordable, simple to install and requires virtually no maintenance, no extra equipment or devices to connect or put over the ears. Home installation includes a Personal Looping Mat which concentrates the signal to your location in the room.

The Looping Solution is ideal for large, open spaces where sound is being transmitted or broadcast such as theaters, community centers, worship centers, government buildings,  customer service counters and senior facility common areas.

The community center and lobby in our new facility are equipped with a looping system.

The Benefits:

– Reduces distortion and echoes caused by environment and acoustics

– Operates inconspicuously in any size room

– Connects seamlessly and wirelessly with personal hearing aids that have manual t-coils, turning hearing aids into a direct receiver of the sound system.

Central Florida Speech & Hearing Center is now installing “Looping Solutions” in homes and public venues. For more information or to schedule a no-charge looping demonstration, please contact us at 863.686.3189, or email looping@cfshc.org.
