Better Hearing with Loops

Dr. Teresa Smith, spoke to Kiwanis about Induction Loop Systems.  Loop systems take a feed from a public address system and transmit it through a wire loop surrounding the space in which people are listening to a presentation, such as a church. Many hearing aids have a telecoil setting that allows users to hear the sound from people nearby, as well as the feed from a loop system, without having to switch from headphones to hearing aids. 

Dr. Smith practices audiology at Hoosier Hear Gear in New Palestine.  Dr. Smith earned her doctoral degree from A.T. Still University.  She has a master’s degree in Communication Disorders from Auburn University.  In addition, she holds a bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Indiana University.
