Living aid supplier Amplicomms has launched a new easy-to-use phone which is designed to help people with conditions such as vision or hearing loss, reduced dexterity, dementia, Parkinson’s and other motor neuron disorders to live more independently.
The BigTel 40+ claims to have a ring tone as loud as a pneumatic drill and at 90dB’s is five times louder than a usual landline.
The phone is simple to operate with a large keypad, six programmable picture buttons and an additional 10 speed dial numbers for quick calls to family and friends.
The tone control allows users to tweak the sound to their own preference and a flashing red light signals that a call is incoming. Volume of outgoing speech may be adjusted too.
The phone has premium compatibility with T Coil Hearing Aids, significantly reducing interference, the company says.
The simplicity of the BigTel 40+ with its amplified volume, enhanced sound quality and big buttons is designed to help those who struggle with standard phones to connect quickly with others.
Amplicomms aims to be a market leader in daily living aids and has a broad portfolio of products ranging from phones, mobiles, accessories, clocks and much more.
