– TEDxOudMetha is a community that hosts independent TED-like events and showcase speakers and experts of various industries and walks of life, to present great, well-formed ideas in under 18 minutes. TEDxOudMetha took place in Dubai on 15th of February 2020 and it was first fully accessible TEDx event ever. As a main partner for Accessibility and one of the sponsors of TEDx OudMetha event, Topland has provided Large Area Induction Loops from Contacta that ensured the main venue hall of more than 100 square meters and outdoor entertainment area of more than 120 square meters were accessible for people with hearing impairment.
TEDxOudMetha event’s venue – Ismaili Centre was designed by renowned architects Rami El Dahan and Soheir Farid of El Dahan & Farid Engineering Consultants from Cairo, Egypt. The Centre facilitates the promotion of cultural, educational and social programmes from the broadest non-denominational perspectives and aims to foster mutual respect and understanding both within the Ummah and across society at large. To protect the architectural integrity of Ismaili Centre but at the same time, to make sure all visitors had full access to all participating areas of TEDx OudMetha event, Topland has provided custom made portable ramps for wheelchair users.
Topland participated in recent AccessAbilities Expo 2019 taken place in Dubai and has already confirmed to participate in the next year event due to overwhelming success and support from the visitors and event organisers.
Topland participated in Beach Blast Event organised by Team Angel Wolf along with Fairmont The Palm Hotel in Dubai.
This is a fortnight event that brings communities together and allows children with all abilities to enjoy beach activities. Due to overwhelming positive response, we are looking to expand the event into other Emirates.
Topland is pleased to be associated with Alexander Ashlin, who is nominated by ToplandPOD to be an Ambassador for People of Determination Products related to hearing impairment.
My name is Alexander Ashlin, I’m 17 years old and an innovation scholar student at Dwight School Dubai, raising awareness for disabilities across the UAE. I was born profoundly deaf and when I was 2 years old, this is when I had my first operation for a cochlear implant. I heard for the first time at the age of 3. Being profoundly deaf hasn’t held me back and I have attended mainstream schools in the UK, South Africa and Dubai.
However it hasn’t been easy being the only deaf student in school and personally experienced bullying, but I was determined not to change who I am. At the age of 16, I successfully passed UK GCSE’s and now I am studying for an IB Diploma and seeking to go to university to study Zoology as I have a passion for animals and the environment.
As part of my innovation scholarship, I set up this vision: Disability Awareness 4 Kids (DA4K) in 2019 with the mission of raising awareness for all disabilities across the UAE and encouraging kids to stand up to bullying. I want to help children of determination across the country by touring various schools and events across the Emirates with the hope of not only raising awareness but also opening their minds to all possibilities.
Topland – People Of Determination is providing amazing products that will make the lives of people with disabilities like deafness a lot easier. I am really pleased to be given the opportunity to support Topland and to promote the company’s products.

Dubai Universal Design Code
Topland is working in Conjunction with Dubai Universal Design Code:
“Dubai Universal Design Code (clause 7.12 page 144) calls for major improvements in facilities for people with disabilities, including enhancement of Hearing Systems. A hearing enhancement system (such as an induction loop, FM or infrared) is required to communicate with hard of hearing persons and shall be provided in the following types of buildings: meeting rooms, auditoriums, service counters, theatres and concert halls. A hearing enhancement system enables sound signals to be transmitted to persons using hearing aids without interference from background noise or excessive reverberation level.
In all meeting rooms of over 25 people, in all assembly areas and at service counters, a hearing enhancement system shall be provided. Hearing enhancement systems that operate using induction loops, infrared and radio frequency are commonly used to provide enhanced level of sound. Expert advice should be sought when selecting a hearing enhancement system appropriate for the situation and purpose. Where hearing enhancement systems are provided for persons with hearing impairment, the international symbol of access for hearing loss shall be provided. Hearing enhancement systems are compatible with language translation systems. A sign should be posted indicating that the enhancement system is available”
Our product range includes:
- 1 to 1 Hearing Induction Loops: Under the Counter Loop System | Above the Counter Loop System |Portable Loop.
- Large Area Loops: V7 | V15 | V15a Heariing Loop Drivers.
- Infrared (IR): The Medium Area Infrared Transmitter with Modulator | Two-channel Large Area Infrared Transmitter with Modulator | Portable Infrared Receiver
- Passenger Vehicles Induction Loops suitable for taxis, busses, metro, trams, et..
A hearing loop is an assistive listening technology that improves communication by enabling the user to hear the sound source directly, therefore reducing background noise. Users can participate in a hearing loop system through a hearing instrument such as a t-coil enabled hearing aid, cochlear implant, or loop listener.
Sound and/or speech is converted into an electromagnetic signal by a hearing loop amplifier. The electromagnetic signal is transmitted via the hearing loop wire or aerial. Users that are inside of the hearing loop wire or within close proximity of the aerial pick up the electromagnetic signal through the t-coil program in their hearing device. The sound and/or speech then gets transmitted directly into the users ear. This significantly reduces the effects of background noise.
Our product range makes hearing loop systems more accessible to the user, event, and community landscape. Hearing loops are custom, unique, and carefully designed at each venue where they are installed. The need for custom products is recognized with exclusive functions and features to meet the user’s needs and desire to hear in the settings in which they work, live, and socialize.

The Tactile Signage & Wayfinding
We provide a wide range of products and services to enable blind and visually impaired people to move independently and travel safe.
Tactile maps – is a simple and realistic scale depiction of an area that can be used by everyone for orientation. The map shows the main useful points of reference for users (for example the information desk, the various desk services, the waiting area, stairs and elevators, the restroom, the emergency exits, etc.) and the modular tactile ground floor pathway that is normally accompanied by the map and that enables the person with a visual impairment to be accompanied as far as the chosen service.
A map can be made of different materials as long as they enable a sufficient accurate machining so that the raised information is perfectly readable for visually impaired people exploring the map with their hands (e.g. aluminum but excellent results can also be obtained using acrylic materials).
Tactile signs – Unlike the tactile map, which provides a plan view and raised information, the tactile signs provide raised information without a plan view. The braille needs to be flawless for the tactile signs just as for the tactile map. That way, the hands of the blind person can explore it easily and the strongly contrasting colors enable it to be read by partially sighted people.The tactile signs can be used in many ways, for example: at service counters open to the public, to indicate the service on offer; at bus stops, to show the stops along the route; in towns, to show the names of streets or describe monuments and important tourist attractions; in stations next to elevators to show floors, along platforms to show the track number and the exit direction, in the passenger building to show the Sala Blu (room for people with impaired mobility); in airports to permit calls for assistance; in museums to illustrate works of art; in parks to indicate a plant or tell the story of the evolution of the plants; in hotels and on ships, to identify the numbers on the doors of rooms and on the key labels; in banks, to provide instructions on how to use the ATM.
Tactile paths – provide blind and visually impaired people with secure directions for their journeys, both in open spaces and inside public buildings such as, for example, train stations or subways, airports, banks, hospitals, post offices or sports stadiums.
Tactile paths enable people with visual impairments to reach their chosen destination after consulting the tactile map: tactile maps and paths have to be coordinated because maps provide information about the services in the area and the paths enable people to reach the chosen services. Tactile paths must consist of modular elements providing recognizable standard codes. The blind person receives the information about orientation and direction by using the foot sole’s tactile sense and his or her white stick; partially sighted people also use their residual vision, then receive the information thanks to the existing color contrast between the path and the surrounding paving. The geometry is based on 2 or 3 code systems: HAZARD: code to indicate a hazard, a staircase, a platform at the station. DIRECTIONAL: code to indicate a direction. POSITIONAL: code to indicate a change of direction.

Magnification: Optical Magnifiers | Electronic Magnifiers | Computer Magnification | Mirrors and Lights
Before buying a magnifier it’s important to know the magnification strength you require and what you’ll be using it for. For example, a pocket magnifier is ideal for spot reading labels and price tags, whereas a stand magnifier is suitable for longer periods of reading. When using a traditional, non-electronic handheld optical magnifier the lens should be held close to the eye and the object should be brought into focus by moving it towards the lens.
