Third study shows reduced tinnitus in 71% of patients with Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation

  December 04, 2012

The study has revealed a significant and sustainable reduction in tinnitus symptoms - for 71% of patients within six months – using the non-invasive tinnitus treatment, Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation. The RESET real life study, conducted in Germany, also revealed that a third of patients experienced reduced symptoms after just two weeks – and that the number of people in the ‘moderate’ to ‘severe’ tinnitus category halved by six months. The recent findings mirrored results from two earlier studies, conducted over the past two years.


Managing tinnitus with specialised digital hearing aid prescriptions

  November 11, 2012

When new patients come into the Clinic for a tinnitus assessment, our team of audiologists conduct a range of tests that determine a patient’s hearing function and tinnitus psychoacoustic characteristics. This is because, in many cases, hearing loss and tinnitus are interlinked.

In the past, you may have needed two devices to help manage hearing loss and tinnitus: hearing aids to improve your hearing and a noise generator in order to provide you with control over your tinnitus. However, The Tinnitus Clinic is now able to supply and fit a range of sophisticated digital hearing aids, including the Siemens Life and Pure Carat range which combine the two functions.

Protect your hearing at summer music festivals

  June 11, 2012

Across the UK, thousands of people are currently preparing for a summer of music festivals. These events can be lots of fun but the extremely loud music can also put you at risk of tinnitus and hearing loss. To help you protect your hearing, the team of expert audiologists at the Tinnitus Clinic have prepared the following guide for festival attendees.

According to Mark Williams, our Principal Scientific Audiologist, “The noise levels at a live gig or concert can easily exceed 85 decibels. Prolonged exposure to this level of noise can lead to noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus.”
