Question

Can I personalize the ReSound Relief app for my patients with tinnitus?

Answer

Yes, you absolutely can! Another aspect of the ReSound Relief app is that people can personalize what they listen to and what they find beneficial. Traditional tinnitus sound generators are not as personalized. Most tinnitus sound generators that are available as a combination unit in hearing aids today give you a little bit of flexibility in terms of the volume. Some allow you to provide some amplitude modulation or to choose between a couple of different sound files. However, in general, they are not highly customizable to the individual's needs.

The ReSound Relief app is an entirely free app, available both on the App Store for Apple-based products and on Google Play for Android-based products. There is also a premium level subscription that the user can choose to purchase on a monthly or yearly basis. However, the premium level is not needed to use the basic app. We will talk more about what that premium subscription offers, but know that it does not need to be activated to use the basic version of the app.

From a personalization point of view, people can customize their soundscapes. They have a sound player that allows them to layer up to five sounds. With the purchase of a Premium Subscription, patients can identify their tinnitus type in a questionnaire that we provide. Also, with a Premium Subscription, patients can create a personalized tinnitus plan, much like a weight loss plan or an exercise plan. It gives them a weekly plan that they can follow. And they can also track their usage and plan their progress over time.
