    • Receiver   
    • Hearing aid
  58. Before the sound is sent to the receiver, it transmitter ensures that no part of the sound signal is greater than 70dB SPL. This is achieved through compression of the incoming
    sound waves.
    The sound is sent from it to the receiver that is attached to the child's hearing aids, by radio frequency waves.
    FM transmitter
  59. converts the radio waves back to electrical energy which is sent to the hearing aid for amplification.
