Welcome To Loop Minnesota
Loop Minnesota advocates for hearing accessibility and better hearing for groups – we assess and promote whatever is the appropriate technology.
Loop Minnesota works to help each client (building, facility, owner manager) make real improvements to help those with hearing loss hear everything in meetings or events.
Let’s Loop the Twin Cities!

Loop Minnesota News
Loop Minnesota helps the City of St. Louis Park install a Hearing Loop
Loop Minnesota along with the Hearing Loss Association of America – Twin Cities Chapter each contributed funds to help pay for the Hearing Loop at the City of St. Louis Park City Hall Council Room. The large room seats 120 people and is used every day during the week for meetings.
Loop Minnesota organized the actual installation of the loop and equipment.
At the St. Louis Park City Council hearing loop dedication, a council member spoke: “I had a serious hearing loss in one ear when I was a child. I have a hearing aid – I recently got a TeleCoil installed in it – this is the first time that I have experienced the loop – it is wonderful – I can hear the presenter very clearly – it is 200% better. I do not hear the background noise at all…”
Please come to a meeting!
The Loop Minnesota has a member meeting to discuss possible Looping projects at the St. Louis Park City Hall at 5005 Minnetonka Blvd., St. Louis Park, MN 55416 – in the Council Chambers 3rd floor. Pizza and other snacks are served.
