Jen From The Little Couple On TLC Extends Her Voice With An AmpliVox Megaphone

What a great surprise to see The Little Couple's Jennifer Arnold, MD extend her voice with help from our megaphone!

On Season 11, Episode 7 of "All Aboard!", Jen found herself working in a warehouse that was set up as a mockup of three patient care rooms. The mockup was to test and evaluate what might be the best design for a set of intensive care units that are being built in a new 19 story tower at the Texas Children's Hospital.

Project "Cardboard Hospital" was teamed by doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, and an architecture firm to design the layout of the pediatric cardiac intensive care unit.

The team created rooms with cardboard walls, filled with real equipment, and used high-tech mannequins with physiological responses to create scenarios that will allow participants to care for a patient and test the risk aspects of the room design.

To coordinate all the moving pieces and start the simulations, Jennifer used an AmpliVox Megaphone to direct all the participants.

The AmpliVox model 601R Mity-Meg 15 Watt Megaphone used by Jen can go anywhere you need to extend your voice. It is ideal for crowd control, announcements in noisy environments, or emergency services.

Mity-Megs 15 Watt power lets you reach even far away audiences. Use the Mity-Meg not only to talk but sound emergency signals.

This charge and go Meg is powered by either conventional batteries or a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can be reused hundreds of times.

A battery strength indicator shows you when it is time to recharge or replace the batteries. You can switch battery type anytime so you are never out of power. There is an optional carry bag that protects the megaphone.

Portable PA Systems Bring Game Atmospheres To Sports Practice

Sports coaches work daily to create practice formats that will best prepare their teams for competition. Research has proven teams that compete at practice with energy, enthusiasm, and at a game-like tempo, typically are successful during competition.

All coaches would agree, at times, it can be hard to get players to consistently be energetic and enthusiastic about practice. Without their 100% commitment, practice time can easily diminish from a time of improvement to a time where teams develop bad habits for games.

How can coaches impact practices in a way that will consistently get players to commit to being energetic and enthusiastic during practice time? Creating a fun and competitive game-like atmosphere at practice can be the solution.

Although using a portable sound system at practice isn’t particularly popular in athletics, many coaches are beginning to rely on this strategy to impact preparation for games.

Portable Sound Systems can create a game-like environment for teams during athletic practices.

Research shows that implementing player-driven audio soundtracks during practice can increase team energy and enthusiasm.

This concept allows athletes to be more engaged with the tone of practice.

Some coaches may fear that audio application could be more distracting than beneficial, however, this concept emphasizes the importance of self-motivation and team discipline.

Another strategy that can create game-like atmospheres at practice involves, adjusting the audio level output during important team period drills.

This forces players to listen and communicate with one another during chaotic situations. Team chemistry and unity will be positively impacted, while also preparing players for intense game situations.

Lastly, sometimes a coach's position on the practice field can make communication efforts difficult. Portable sound system application to a practice environment would allow coaches to be clearly heard no matter where they are, or which direction they are facing. Coaches can establish and maintain a game-like tempo by having a more vocal role in practice.
