Question

What are the components of Widex ZEN Therapy?

Answer

Widex's approach to tinnitus management has been a long-standing one, which encompasses four pillars of counseling, amplification, fractal tones (ZEN) and relaxation. This approach of combining these components is very different from the way many other manufacturers have designed their plan for tinnitus relief within their hearing aids. In most cases, others focus on a masking approach, whereas Widex ZEN Therapy is designed to promote habituation. Habituation is the retraining of the brain by stimulating the auditory cortex appropriately and resetting the link between the auditory cortex and the limbic system.
