Wireless network and hearing aids

Anyone know if these interfere with hearing aids. I ask because we bought an induction loop for a mobile phone and as this was a success we where going to buy a similar device for the TV. I believe this transmits to the loop via infrared so I wouldn’t think that was a problem, but the loop transmits up to the hearing aid without being connected to them and if we set up a wireless network 2 pc and a laptop could this interfere?

Very much doubt that you would get any interference.

No it won't interfere, your loop uses magnetic induction, whereas the wireless network uses low power microwave to connect.
