FM Systems

An FM (Frequency Modulation) System utilizes radio waves and is a wireless system and is useful when the speaker is more than a few feet away (up to 150 feet).

The microphone and receivers are battery operated and generally use rechargeable batteries. Since it uses FM radio waves it will also transmit sound through objects and walls.

Equipment Loan

The Adaptive Technology Centre has eight FM systems for loan. FM systems can be signed out for an academic term. FM Systems must be signed out from and returned to the Adaptive Technologist in the Adaptive Technology Centre.
