Amplicomms PowerTel 97 Alarm 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 97 Alarm Amplified Big Button Telephone has been designed to provide easier use with adjustable volume, larger buttons, and remote SOS button activation.
The PowerTel 97 Alarm is an ideal telephone for anybody suffering with hearing difficulties. It features volume-adjustable settings that enable a receiver volume increase 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, minimising the risk of 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.
Easier to See
The combination of large buttons and an LCD backlit display screen ensures that the phone can be seen more clearly. The button design makes the numbers easier to read, reducing the risk of telephone numbers being incorrectly dialled. As they are easier to manage than smaller, traditional buttons, they are also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity. The additional handsfree speaker phone will also reduce the need to hold onto the phone during use.
The display screen features extra-large characters for easy reading, and shows Caller ID, up to ninety-nine programmable phonebook entries, and a twenty-four-hour clock. The display menu is also available in six languages.
Emergency and Speed Dialling
The PowerTel 97 Alarm is a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. The redial button reduces the need to repeatedly enter the same number, while the built-in phonebook stores up to ninety-nine numbers within the phone unit for convenient dialling.
The user can also programme three speed-dial numbers. The buttons are colour coded, with a red 'SOS' button ideal for emergency services. The three green buttons are labelled 'M1', 'M2', and 'M3', providing practical options for programming frequently dialled numbers such as family members or carers.
Wireless Remote SOS Pendant
The phone is provided with a water-resistant wireless remote SOS pendant alarm. This can be worn either on the wrist or around the neck, and can be programmed to activate one of the three programmable buttons on the unit. This is ideal for anybody prone to falls or needing to call for assistance while unable to reach the phone base.
Wearing the pendant alarm around the house will provide peace of mind that it will always be possible to dial for help when the phone is not in reach.
