Special looping presentation by Thomas Kaufmann

Thomas Kaufmann will be giving a special presentation “Looping Our Communities–What can we learn from the Santa Barbara Project” at ALOHA on Tuesday, April 4th from 2:30 – 3:30 pm

          Thomas Kaufmann, hearing loop expert, physicist, and founder of Otojoy, will be presenting the fundamentals of how a hearing loop works and where the loop systems can and should be used.  He will also report about the successes of the Loop Santa Barbara campaign and how to duplicate it in other communities.  That campaign was responsible for installation of 60 loops in four years. 

          Tom will explain the differences between perimeter loops like we have at ALOHA and phased array loops required in many larger and more complex settings. He will be sharing information on ear buds with telecoils which allow people without hearing aids, including people with normal hearing, to enjoy the benefits of the loop without a cumbersome head set.  Tom is the developer of

This special 2:30 pm presentation will follow the regularly scheduled 1:00 pm Peer Support Group.  We hope you can attend!  (ALOHA, 4001 E. Fort Lowell)



“Get in the loop!”  Let’s keep the momentum going. We have made good progress in our Let’s Loop Tucson Program over the years.  How many? We’ve decided it’s time to step up the pace and broaden the participation.  Dr. Sterkens gave this new effort a great jump start at the workshop January 26.  The team is open to anyone with a commitment to build our knowledge, skill and effectiveness as advocates for better hearing accommodations in public meeting areas and worship centers.
We will meet on Third Tuesdays from  2:30 to 3:30 after the support group beginning Tuesday, February 16. For more information contact Karl Hallsten, Board President at
