People currently have very few evidence-based tinnitus treatment options available to them, and we’re here to change that.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
Tinnitus is a hearing condition that causes the perception of a persistent ringing in the ears, robbing people of silence. AudioNotch is a new web-based software program that provides tinnitus treatment online.
Users are supplied with Tailor-Made Notched Sound Therapy, which is customized for each individual’s unique tinnitus frequency. Over time, listening to this sound therapy lowers the volume of the user's tinnitus, reducing the distress and suffering associated with this condition.
“Many existing tinnitus treatments fail to target the root cause of tinnitus—instead, they are merely designed to mask the noise,” said Peter Phua, Co-Founder. “Our therapy directly lowers the volume of the tinnitus tone itself, and is available at an affordable cost.”
Depending on their preference, users can select from two variants of Tailor-Made Notched Sound Therapy: Notched Music, or Notched White Noise. The treatment is based on methods published in peer-reviewed European studies. “We’re proud to be backed by scientific evidence, and we invite prospective customers to examine the evidence themselves,” said Peter Phua.
AudioNotch.com uses a three-step process to treat individuals afflicted with tinnitus. “In Step 1, users detect their specific tinnitus frequency by matching it to a computer generated tone. In Step 2, users input their choice of sound (music or white noise) and the software "notches out" the sound energy around their tinnitus frequency,” said Adrian Green, Co-Founder and CTO. “Finally, in Step 3, users listen to these processed tracks and their tinnitus volume is reduced.”
AudioNotch has won the Best Biomedical Talk Award at the University of Toronto Connections Conference, where Adrian Green presented the technology behind the software. “We're very excited to be helping people with tinnitus,” said Adrian. “People currently have very few evidence-based tinnitus treatment options available to them, and we’re here to change that.”
