Neuromonics Inc, a Colorado-based maker and distributor of medical devices designed for tinnitus relief, is introducing a downloadable product for mobile devices. The Neuromonics Tinnitus Alleviator™ will work on iOS 9-enabled devices, and uses a proven treatment protocol.
According to Neuromonics, users will listen to spectrally modified music designed to retrain the brain to ignore the ringing sounds and stop reacting negatively to them. An Android version will reportedly release this summer.
Consumers can download the Neuromonics Tinnitus Alleviator at the Apple App Store. Upon downloading, the consumer will receive a 7-day free trial. After that period, subscriptions are available for purchase at $.99/day; $5.99/week; $24.99/month; $69.99/three months; $149.99/six months; and $249/year. Users will be able to customize the music to their hearing, and raise and lower the imbedded neural stimulus.
“The downloadable Neuromonics Tinnitus Alleviator represents an excellent opportunity for consumers to realize the benefit of Neuromonics’ proven treatment without the cost typically involved,” said Eula Adams, CEO of Neuromonics. “Consumers who participated in the product’s trial agreed that it is a safe, simple, effective way to ease the symptoms of ringing in the ears.”
Neuromonics reports that more than 50 million people in the US suffer from tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, when no external sounds are present. Often brought on by exposure to loud noise, the problem is especially significant in the military, with more than 34% of returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from the condition. For many sufferers, the ringing noise causes fatigue, depression, anxiety, and problems with memory and concentration.
With research and development beginning in the early 1990s, Neuromonics says the company has helped thousands of tinnitus sufferers improve their quality of life and overcome the daily life challenges associated with tinnitus. Today, Neuromonics provides its devices to nearly 2,000 hearing professionals on four continents, through direct relationships and reseller partners.
