Amplicomms PowerTel 90 Amplified Big Button Telephone
For the hard of hearing or visually impaired, everyday tasks such as using a telephone can become a constant struggle due to low volumes and small buttons. The Amplicomms PowerTel 90 Amplified Big Button Telephone has been designed with these difficulties in mind, offering a corded telephone with adjustable volume and larger buttons for easier operation.
The PowerTel 90 is an ideal telephone for anybody suffering with hearing difficulties, as it features various volume-adjustable settings. The receiver volume can be increased up to 40dB. 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 also be adjusted up to 90dB. This is beneficial for anybody who has difficulty hearing the phone when it rings. The tone control can also be altered, with the ability to set the frequency either higher or lower depending on individual requirements. The addition of a mute button ensures that the phone will not disturb the user when it is activated.
Easier to See
The larger size of the buttons on the PowerTel 90 is ideal for those with visual impairments. The big button design means that the numbers will be easier to read, reducing the risk of telephone numbers being incorrectly dialled. This larger size is also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity as they are easier to manage that smaller, traditional dialling buttons. This will also be assisted by the use of the handsfree speaker phone, reducing the need to hold onto the phone during use.
The telephone is fitted with an LED light, which flashes when there is an incoming call. This light provides a bright visual alert to indicate that the phone is ringing, offering an additional aid for telephone use.
Emergency and Speed Dialling
In addition to the visual and audial benefits, the PowerTel 90 is also a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a last number redial button, which reduces the need for the same numbers to be repeatedly entered in succession.
The user also has the ability to programme three speed-dial numbers of their choosing. The buttons are colour coded for assisting with recalling functions, with a red 'SOS' button ideal for emergency services. The two green buttons are labelled 'M1' and 'M2', providing practical options for programming frequently dialled numbers such as family members or carers.
