Amplicomms PowerTel 96 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 96 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 96 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 60dB. 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 addition of a mute button ensures that the phone will not disturb the user when it is activated.
Easier to See
The larger button size on the PowerTel 96 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. The additional handsfree speaker phone will also reduce the need to hold onto the phone during use.
The telephone is fitted with an LCD backlit large display screen, which clearly displays Caller ID, the number dialled, up to fifty programmable phonebook entries, and a twenty-four-hour clock. The display menu is also available in twelve languages. With the addition of an LED light, which flashes when there is an incoming call, the phone provides a bright visual alert as an additional visual aid.
Emergency and Speed Dialling
The PowerTel 96 is a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button, which reduces the need for the same number to be repeatedly entered in succession. The built-in phonebook will also help store up to fifty numbers within the phone unit for convenient dialling.
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.
