Wireless tv speakers

Unusual situation. Sister in law has very severe arthritis. She's in a semi private nursing home room with two tv's in the room. Needs a wireless speaker system that would have speakers close to her . They need to be in her bed and also in her power chair. She can't use TV Ears as she can't put them into her ears. Severe arthritis. Have to be wireless.

In most places there are pillow speakers provided as part of the nurse call system. They also control the TVs and in some cases, lights. How are the TVs controlled? It's not advisable to have two TVs blasting in a semi-private room. The patients tend to get into volume wars.

If the TVs are commercial or consumer grade, they will have outputs to connect to a device like this: TV Ears Speaker. This one uses infrared to transmit and has an AC adapter for the speaker. (Most run on rechargeable batteries. If your SIL is like others in a nursing home, the TV is on close to 24/7.)

If the TVs are hospital grade they will have either a 1/4-inch or DIN connector in the back with a switch to select "Nurse Call" or internal speakers. If that's the case, post back.

Thanks, Rick for your response. Doubt Tv Ears would work because she isn't able to put them on. Yes, it's two regular HDTVs in same room with the other patient really hard of hearing. Probably need to buy a set for the other patient. Probably no answer to the question.

The speaker would work if she was right next to it, or better yet, the pillow speaker, but she is in a power chair some times that would require the volume turned up. Possibly as high as the tv if she wasn't using anything.
