- Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs): FM Systems
You may have certain communications needs that can't be solved alone by hearing aids. For example, when you use the telephone or listen to the radio, you still may have difficulty hearing clearly.
Special devices have been developed to solve these problems. Assistive listening devices make specific desired sounds, rather than all sounds (in the surrounding environment) louder for more clarity. Some of these devices are especially helpful in background noise.
- TV Ears (as seen on TV) for listening to the television
Other Assistive devices include:
- alarm clocks,
- alerting devices that attach to the telephone,
- smoke detectors,
- fire alarms to make the hearing impaired person aware that the phone is ringing or that there is danger.
- Ear Protection and musicians and performers earpieces
One in 10 Americans has a hearing loss that affects his or her ability to understand normal speech. Excessive noise exposure is the most common cause of hearing loss. The longer you are exposed to a loud noise, the more damaging it may be. Also, the closer you are to the source of intense noise, the more damaging it is.
Every gunshot produces a noise that could damage the ears of anyone in close hearing range. Large bore guns and artillery are the worse because they are the loudest. But even cap guns and firecrackers can damage your hearing if the explosion is close to your ear. Anyone who uses firearms without some form of ear protection risks hearing loss.
Recent studies show an alarming increase in hearing loss in youngsters. Evidence suggests that loud rock music along with increased use of portable radios with earphones may be responsible for this phenomenon.
Although over the counter ear protection does help protect your hearing somewhat if you are exposed daily to loud noises it is better to have custom made ear protection. Our staff is trained to take these ear impressions and have these custom molds made to fit your ears specifically.
- Musicians and performers
Have unique noise exposure problems and we make custom earpieces that adapt to your monitors or protect your ears from damage in perfomance situations without interfering with your ability to hear needed sounds.
