Loop Utah Movement Underway with Support from Listen Technologies
 
Listen Technologies joined Loop Utah in September to Kick-Off the Loop Utah Movement at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Festival.
 
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA—Listen Technologies joined other hearing loss advocates at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Festival for the kick-off of the statewide movement to get Hearing Loops installed in public spaces throughout Utah.  
 
The Loop Utah Movement is dedicated bringing more awareness to the subject of hearing loss by educating Utah communities about assistive listening systems, in particular Hearing Loops, which provide individuals with hearing loss a better way to experience what they fully deserve when they visit public places like churches, theatres, museums, auditoriums, and concert venues.
 
As a co-sponsor of the event, Listen installed two temporary Hearing Loops, one around the main stage for presentations and a smaller one at their own booth to demonstrate the technology to visitors. A Hearing Loop, also known as an Induction Loop or T-Loop, is an assistive listening system that provides access to facilities for those with hearing loss. It takes a sound source and transfers it directly to a hearing aid without background noise.
 
The increasing popularity of Hearing Loops has seen a steady increase in the inclusion of telecoils in hearing aids. At present just under 70% of hearing aid models on the market are fitted with them. This number is as high as 95% in countries where Hearing Loops are already established, and all new model cochlear implants now offer telecoils.
 
“I am involved with Loop Utah, because I believe in the technology,” says Dr. Lobdell, Loop Utah Steering Committee Chair. “My passion for loop technology began early in my career when my hard of hearing grandmother explained how a loop system allowed her to continue to participate in church services, which made me wonder why the technology wasn’t available in more places.”
 
Loop Utah planning meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Sanderson Community Center. For more details on what you can do to be a part of the movement visit www.looputah.org.
