We got a new system for Lotte to use her FM equipment. Previous we used this system on the right ( link to the post here).This was in a transmitter in combination with a socalled "MicroLink" that would fit in the BTE.. Batteries would be in there as well which gave us a problem.
Lotte uses rechargeable batteries. This would mean that Lotte had to remove the rechargeable batteries from the BTE (and store them in a safe place), then insert the MicroLink into the BTE. The latter needed the disposable batteries. This meant two systems of batteries. Not very practical. And costly...
Lotte didn't like it. Probably because there's too much attention directed towards her... Basically.... it was hardly used..
The "Hjelpemiddelsentralen" here in town suggested to use a sender and receiver that would be carried around the neck... The microphone in the transmitter (on the right, the ZoomLink +) would be send to the receiver (on the left, the MyLink +) and then via "teleslynge" ( Hearing Loop in English I believe).. around Lotte's neck to het BTE.. The receiver can be carried under her shirt...
Ideal for sports where it's difficult to hear due to all the noise around Lotte.. A trainer would be able to coach her directly... Only his/her voice would go into Lotte's ear.
The microphone can be set to pick up sound from all around, a small cone, or only from close-by in a "beam" setting... (The three buttons on the Transmitter..)
There's just one problem....
Lotte doesn't want to use it..... "I can hear fine"... she tells us....
OK.. still work to do... LOL..
