Amplicomms PowerTel 1702 Amplified Cordless Telephone with Additional Handset
For the hard of hearing or visually impaired, and for anybody suffering from memory loss, everyday tasks such as using a telephone can become a constant struggle. Designed with these difficulties in mind, the Amplicomms PowerTel 1702 Amplified Cordless Telephone with Additional Handset offers two cordless telephones with adjustable volume and bright display screens, with the added ability to programme numbers to assist with memory issues.
The PowerTel 1702 is a duo version of another popular amplified telephone, the Amplicomms PowerTel 1700, providing an additional handset for more versatile use.
The PowerTel 1702 is an ideal telephone combination for anybody suffering with hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. The receiver volume can be increased up to 30dB. This will help improve the quality of telephone conversations by ensuring that the person on the other end can be clearly heard. This will be particularly important if sensitive information or medical advice is being delivered, as it minimises the risk of the information being misheard.
The ringer volume can be adjusted up to 80dB. This is beneficial for anybody who has difficulty hearing the phone when it rings. The phone also features an equaliser, enabling the tone to be altered between four different settings for optimal listening. With two handsets, they can be placed in different rooms, or on different floors in the home, ensuring it can always be close by when it rings.
Easier to Operate
The bright backlit extra-large display screen on the PowerTel 1702 is ideal for those with visual impairments. It can display both text and numbers for easily searching through the phonebook, and it also features the date and time for viewing information with ease.
The cordless phones also feature handsfree capabilities. This will be convenient for anybody who might struggle to hold onto the phone, such as those suffering from shaking hands or weak and tired muscles.
Storage Ideal for Memory Loss
In addition to the visual and audial benefits, the PowerTel 1702 has a built-in phonebook with a capacity to store up to one hundred telephone numbers. This will be ideal for anybody with memory issues, as it eradicates the requirement to recall phone numbers or locate telephone books. The numbers will be safely stored in the phone, always ready for easy dialling.
Quality is guaranteed with the PowerTel 1702, as the phone complies with the European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) EN 300381 'Telephony for hearing impaired people; Inductive coupling of telephone earphones to hearing aids'. This means that the PowerTel 1702 meets the required standards set by the ETS to help ensure a reliable device when used with hearing aids.
