Hearing loops are now in nearly 300 locations in Wisconsin. For a complete list of locations that offer hearing loops see http://www.loopwisconsin.com/PDFFiles/WisconsinLoops.pdf. VIsit www.hearingloop.org or www.loopwisconsin.com for more information. Hearing loops are extremely beneficial for hearing aid users but usually require a trained installer. Loops should be installed to meet the IEC 60118-4 standard to make sure the magnetic signal is strong and clear enough and free from magnetic interference for the hearing aid users. Questions about hearing loops? I am happy to help. As the Hearing Loss Assocation of America Hearing Loop Advocated I can be contacted via the email address on the www.loopwisconsincom.com home page.
