Question

How do the signature features of Widex EVOKE support patients with tinnitus?

Answer

EVOKE's sound processing strategy and amplification features continue to support tinnitus relief for our patients using our ZEN solution, combined with these features:

  • 108 dB True Input Technology (input from 5-113 dB SPL), providing patients with an acoustically rich representation of sound.
  • Soft level noise reduction that ensures natural sound quality and helps to minimize distortion for patients whether they're in a soft acoustic environment or they're in a very loud, noisy restaurant. Additionally, this allows for control of the amount of access to soft or distant sounds.
  • Sensogram for in situ threshold testing, allowing for greater precision and accuracy. Our ZEN tones are based on results of the Sensogram input to ensure audibility of all of the tones from low frequency, mid, and up into the high-frequency range.
  • A high-frequency boost that allows us to have access to extended or extra gain between 6000-10,000Hz, which many patients with very high frequency tinnitus matching find beneficial.
  • Fluid sound technology, which has been enhanced in the EVOKE over our previous family of products. This ensures that the adaptive environmental program is not only automatic but also very precise in the way that it responds to our patients' listening environments.
  • EVOKE and TONELINK apps, both which offer patients the ability to have control on a day-to-day basis that's easy to use and appreciated by patients.

Why Treat Tinnitus Patients
Presented by Robert Sweetow, PhD

Robert Sweetow, PhD
Course: #29562Level: Intermediate1 Hour
  'very detailed'   Read Reviews
Widex Zen Therapy (WZT), an integrated approach to tinnitus patient management consisting of acoustic therapy (fractal tones and/or filtered noise), amplification, counseling (both instructional and adjustment based via cognitive behavioral intervention) and relaxation exercises (including sleep management strategies) has been proven to be an effective method for helping tinnitus sufferers manage this very difficult symptom.
In this course, an examination of the evolution and rationale of WZT and its individual components will be detailed. Each component of the integrated therapy will be described. The results of several recent independent, multi-site clinical investigations will be examined and analyzed with regard not only to success (and failure) rate, but also why, and for which patients, this approach applies. There will be a demonstration of the software required to program the sound therapy components of WZT as well as a discussion of future trends.
