Hearing Assistive Technology Training

Filed under: General, HLAA- Albany NY — Paul Czech & Associates @ 2:03 am

Mr. Czech attended the Hearing Assistive Technology Training Program in Bethesda, Maryland this past weekend.  The program shared more insight and knowledge on topics such as, hearing loss, speech and aging; how to  identify and reduce hearing hazards; and the latest trends in technology: hearing aids, hearing loops, cochlear implants, captioning, assistive listening devices and many more.

“60 percent of people with hearing loss are between the ages of 21 and 65.  More than 20 million Americans have hearing loss from loud noise.  More than 59,000 veterans are on disability status for hearing loss.”

HLAA Talk on Hearing Loops

Filed under: General, HLAA- Albany NY — Paul Czech & Associates @ 12:37 pm

Mr. Czech was asked to be a speaker in Albany NY at the College of Saint Rose on the rising technology of hearing loops this past Tuesday.  

A hearing loop brings clear and quality sound with no background noise or clatter, it can be installed almost anywhere, at home, theaters, airports, train stations, courts, and so on.

“A hearing loop is a wire that circles a room and is connected to a sound system.  The loops transmits the sound electromagnetically.  The electromagnetic signal is then picked up by the telecoil in the hearing aid or cochlear implant”
