Everyone deserves the best care for his or her hearing to ensure effective use of this key body sense and to help with effective communication and language processing. It makes sound sense to have an assistive device at times because you may have certain communication needs that cannot be solved by the use of hearing aids alone.
Many social interactions are more rewarding when you have confidence in which effective hearing is a vital part. These situations may involve the use of the telephone, radio, television, and the inability to hear the door chime, telephone bell, and alarm clock. Assistive listening devices make sounds louder and provide for greater ease of access and understanding.
These devices integrate the world of sound we encounter in daily life. Assistive devices can increase the loudness of a desired sound (such as a radio or television, a public speaker, an actor, or someone talking in a noisy place) without interference from background noises. This works because the transmitter of the assistive listening device is placed close to the speaker, which streams the sound directly to the hearing aids.
This provides a loud alarm for use with hearing loss or for deep sleepers who find they do not awaken easily with a regular alarm clock. Amplified alarm clocks may also be used with a flashing lamp or a pillow shaker.
