What's new with the ReSound tinnitus portfolio?
On November 1st, we released the ReSound Relief™ app for tinnitus. It’s a multisensory app that allows people to create soundscapes, which essentially are sound environments that they can personalize. This app is an extra tool in our tinnitus portfolio that enables us more flexibility to customize and personalize sound therapy for tinnitus patients.
You can layer up to five different sounds, create very dynamic soundscapes, and even play standard white noise if you'd like. There's also a lot of informational content within it, which is what makes it unique from other tinnitus sound therapy apps. We're not just here to have people push a play button and start a sound; we want to inform and educate people about tinnitus as well. There are also helpful tips so people can understand their tinnitus better and get started on the process of managing their tinnitus.
The app can be used by people who have tinnitus and normal hearing as well as those with hearing loss. So, it can be streamed wirelessly to hearing instruments, or you can just plug in a conventional set of headphones use the app.
It’s available for free download on both Google Play and the App Store through Apple. You can learn more in the ReSound CEU webinar on AudiologyOnline, Using Personalized Sound Therapy: ReSound Relief, by visiting www.gnresound.com or on the ReSound Expo Page on AudiologyOnline.
