ASSISTIVE LISTENING DEVICES
Assistive Listening and Signaling Devices (ALD’s)
The Doctors of Audiology at Advanced Hearing Care offer many devices to enhance specific listening situations other than hearing aids.
1. Amplified telephone:
Some people with hearing loss have a difficult time using their hearing aid with the telephone. An amplified telephone helps people feel comfortable talking on the phone by increasing the volume. Products vary in price and features available. The South Carolina Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program provides South Carolina residents free amplified telephones. Please call Advanced Hearing Care for more information.
2. TV Listening System:
These systems allow you to listen to the TV at the volume you want without disturbing others. These systems connect directly to your TV and can be used with or without your hearing devices.
3. Alarms and Alerting Devices:
Advanced Hearing Care offers a variety of devices that keep you safe and secure. Products include smoke detectors, infant devices, doorbell signalers and alarm clocks.
4. Personal Amplifiers:
For people with hearing loss whereby hearing aids are not feasible, a pocket-sized personal amplifier may be considered. They are portable for use anywhere, indoors or out. They are great for one-on-one conversations and TV listening and can also be helpful for conversations in the car.
