Advantages for students with impaired hearing


Children can be afflicted with temporary hearing impairment as a result of colds, ear infections and other ailments many times throughout the school year. As a result, it can be difficult for children to hear and understand what is being said, particularly in situations where there is background noise. This makes children especially dependant on a good sound environment for speech understanding in learning situations.

The same is true for children with permanent hearing impairment that use hearing aids or have a Cochlear Implant (CI). They have an even greater need for the improved sound environment and speech understanding that a FrontRow sound field system provides. Flexible functionality makes it possible to connect a student’s FM system directly to the sound system so that the teacher’s and other student’s voices are transferred wirelessly to the students FM-receiver. Therefore, the teacher can be sure that the student can hear what is said during the lesson directly through the hearing aid(s).
