What a great night at the OKC HLAA with the Hearing Loop Table!
Our July meeting was a casual game night and was a perfect evening to demonstrate the hearing loop table made by Contacta, Inc. The hearing loop table has a hearing loop built underneath the surface of the table with microphones in the corners. This allows people who are hard of hearing to simply switch their hearing aids to a T-coil setting and hear each other with clarity! Each table is handcrafted and proudly made in the USA.
Just imagine sitting at your favorite restaurant again and actually being able to hear the waiter explaining the specials or even hear your friends across the table. It is perfect for community centers for cards or board games. We had a blast playing Left Center Right and could actually hear each other! One member said “This would be fantastic for Thanksgiving dinners!”
Assist2Hear is happy to introduce the hearing loop table and hearing loop technology to restaurants, assisted living centers, community centers, and churches throughout Oklahoma! Please visit the Hearing Helpers Room to experience the loop table for yourself and to learn about other hearing loss technology for daily living. The hearing helpers room is located in the Integris OKC- INTEGRIS Third Age Life Office, 5300 N. Independence, Ste. 210, Oklahoma City , OK 73112.

Please consider joining the OKC HLAA. One of my favorite things to do is to meet other people who experience hearing loss in my own community. It is so empowering to share information and tips about living with hearing loss. Oklahoma City has a very strong group filled with members willing to share their own stories and help our community become more hearing friendly. Join the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America for our annual ice cream social on August 5, 2017 from 2:00-4:00pm at Lakeside Methodist Church in OKC! Download the invitation and invite a friend to share the scoop about hearing loss!
