Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The RNID actively promotes the use of induction loops as a means of improving communication using hearing aids, particularly in public places. The magnetic flux density, 100-500 nT, needed for effective performance is comparable with fields to which people are exposed every day in the home, and much less than those which can be encountered in the work environment. In the light of current scientific knowledge, the risks to health would appear to be minimal.
