Why did Widex create SoundRelax and how does it help patients?
As we become more aware of the effects stress can have on our minds and bodies, finding innovative ways to relax has never been more important. That’s why, with Widex Moment Sheer™, we’ve expanded our fractal sound stimulation universe with Widex SoundRelax™
We have built on our unique and patented algorithm, applying fractal mathematics to generate a great new palette of constantly changing, soothing tones and nature sounds to relax the mind. Widex SoundRelax can also be combined with PureSound™ to provide the best sound quality for all hearing losses.
Widex SoundRelax features softer tones and modulated nature sounds, which can be combined according to the individual user’s preferences. These new sounds are rated highly by listeners with and without tinnitus for relaxation, concentration, and well-being.
There are many studies that link sounds, more particularly music, to improved overall health. Music therapy has shown the ability to help older people reduce their depression levels. Music therapy has also shown valuable effects on anxiety and depression in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. In one study, profound effects were found when 'relaxation' was stated as the reason for music listening with decreases in subjective stress levels and lower cortisol concentrations. These are all great examples of sounds improving overall health. And we look at quality overall health as a benefit to quality hearing health.
