Q: Why does my Nucleus 5/6 activate whenever I’m on or near a Melbourne tram?
A: If a cochlear implant recipient is using Autotelecoil they may find that the telecoil activates when they enter a looped area. This can sometimes be surprising if the looped area is not obvious e.g. a train station, tram, exhibition at a museum etc. Also if the telecoil is enabled the wearer may be more susceptible to interference from the environment.
