Research indicates electrical stimulation of the inner ear is effective in suppressing tinnitus.
Compelling facts show that chronic tinnitus is a very large global unmet clinical need.
- Severe, chronic tinnitus affects 1% of the population in most developed countries.
- In the United States, over 3 million people suffer from chronic tinnitus.
- One in four active duty troops experience hearing loss and/or tinnitus, and is the number one service connected disability affecting veterans.
- Chronic tinnitus is often associated with other co-morbid conditions, such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
Our Mission is to develop a therapeutic neurostimulation device to treat patients with chronic tinnitus.
