AT Tip: Roger Wireless Microphones 

Roger wireless microphones help hearing instrument users understand more speech in noisy and distant environments. Roger wirelessly transmits a speaker’s voice directly to the listener.

Compatible with virtually every hearing aid, cochlear implant and bone-anchored device, our range of Roger microphones and receivers provide toddlers with hearing loss access to more words, wherever they go.

Roger microphones

Roger can improve your child’s access to speech from a very early age. This improvement can contribute to timely speech and language development and learning success.

This assistive technology equipment can be funded through Medicaid.
