Highline Audiology Owner/Audiologist Rebecca Grady points to the Loop System wiring at Wesley Homes in Des Moines.

BTB Advertiser Highline Audiology recently donated several “Loop Systems” for hard-of-hearing residents of Wesley Homes in Des Moines, including their Terrace and Care Center.

Each “Loop System” costs around $1,500.

A “Loop System” is technology that allows the transmission of amplified audio directly to hearing aids with telecoils (T-coils) when a microphone is used. It’s basically a P.A. system that you can tap directly into via telecoil-equipped hearing aids.

Here’s some info from the HearingLoop.com website:

Hard of hearing people can dream of a future when hearing aids might also serve as wireless loudspeakers, delivering clear, sharp, customized, sound right from inside their ears.

They can dream of communities where churches, auditoriums, drive-up business windows and home TV rooms all broadcast their sound directly through these in-the-ear loudspeakers.

Thanks to the refinement of “induction loop” systems that transmit directly to hearing aids with telecoils (T-coils), that future can be now!

What wi-fi is to laptops, loop systems are to hearing aids.

Highline Audiology also donated one to Judson Park for use in their Chapel.  They are all in various stages of installation.

Other places in the area that are looped include:

  • Des Moines United Methodist Church
  • Saltwater Universalist Unitarian Church
  • Fauntleroy United Church of Christ
  • West Seattle Christian Church
