Hearing aids and/or Cochlear implants provided to Australian children are equipped with Roger Receivers.

The use of  a Roger™ Touchscreen Transmitter (teacher microphone) with a Roger Dynamic Soundfield Speaker in the classroom in combination with the Roger receiver is considered best practice.  This combination ensures transmission of sound directly to the Roger Receiver on the child’s hearing aid, as well as dynamic adjustment of all sound within the classroom.

Phonak Soundfield Speakers are dynamic which means that they adjust the sound amplification to achieve the best acoustic environment for everyone in the room.

Soundfield usage offers:

  • reduction of background noise,
  • improved classroom behaviour,
  • reduction in stigma associated with wearing a hearing aid, and
  • greater control and quality of input from the teacher.
