Seats with body-sensible acoustic device for deaf and hard-of-hearing people

This performance provides seats with body-sensible acoustic device, which enables physical sensation from sound converted into vibration, so that deaf and hard-of-hearing people and their families or caregivers can sit together to enjoy music.


Body-sensible acoustic device “Bodysonic” Seats (about 20 seats)

The seat is equipped with a set of pouch and seat cushion installed with a vibrating device. By transferring vibration to the user’s body, the device assists deaf and hard-of-hearing users, including those with hearing loss wearing hearing aids or those with adventitious deafness, to enjoy music with the whole body along with sounds perceived from headphones and hearing loops. Those with congenital deafness can enjoy music with only the vibration provided by the device.
