'Everyone has the right to hear & to communicate.'
The Equality Act 2010 states that everyone should be treated equally and with 11 million people in the UK living with hearing loss, providing assisted hearing systems for customers, service users and staff offers a key opportunity for improved inclusivity of buildings.
The most common system to assist communication with those with impaired hearing is an Audio Frequency Induction Loop System (AFILS) - often known simply as 'Induction Loop'.
