      Wake n' Shake Curve alarm clock

      The brand new look of the Geemarc Wake and Shake Curve alarm clock, with large display, wakes up those with up to profound deafness. It alerts you using its amplified alarm, a flashing light, a vibrating pad that you simply pop under your pillow, and a USB port that can charge your portable devices including your smartphone.

      Ed says: “The Wake n' Shake Curve is a must have product to help me get up in the early mornings. The vibrating pad is extremely powerful that can shake awake the deepest of sleepers. Also, I get to charge my smartphone at the same time while I'm sleeping to ensure a fully charged phone for the day.”

      Sonido hand held listening device

      The Sonido hand held listening device supports mild to severe hearing loss. Conversations are clearer and background noise is reduced. It can also be used for hearing the television and radio more clearly. In order to complete the unit, a neckloop, headphones, stethoset or ear hooks needs to be added.

      Ed says: “I really like the Sonido because it offers excellent value for money and gives amazing clarity and amplification, particularly in environments where there's background noise. As I wear a hearing aid, I use either a neckloop or earhooks that plug into the Sonido, which transfers the sound to my hearing aid - a bit like headphones."
