Hearing Loop installed in Clubhouse
Hearing loop systems allow hearing impaired people to hear more clearly.
Most hearing aids have a 'T' or 'MT' switch that allows them to pick up the electromagnetic field generated by a telephone earpiece. This signal is converted by the hearing aid into a sound suited to its user's specific hearing requirements. An induction loop system uses this same principle but generates a much larger magnetic field than that created by a telephone earpiece and radiates it around a room via a 'loop' of cable. Any hearing impaired person positioned within the loop can hear the loop signal by switching their hearing aid to the correct position.
Members and guests can now benefit from this new system. To use simply switch your hearding aid to T-coil whilst you are in the clubhouse..
