Oticon has upgraded its portfolio of OPN hearing aids with the launch of Tinnitus SoundSupport™, a new technology that will provide relief to those with tinnitus.
“We want to help change the perception that when people have tinnitus there’s nothing they can do,” said Gitte Maj Schrøder, Product Manager at Oticon. “With these new improvements to Opn, millions of people around the world who have to live with tinnitus now have the opportunity to find relief from what can often be an extremely debilitating condition.”
Tinnitus can manifest itself in a number of different ways, from loud ringing to noticeable hissing. The impact of tinnitus on individual’s life can range from stress and anxiety to a significant impact on sleep and general well-being. There is no cure for tinnitus, but there are many ways to help one cope with the condition.
Oticon’s Tinnitus SoundSupport™ uses the proven sound therapy to move focus away from tinnitus by using various sounds to drown it out. Users can choose from masking sounds, four broadband sound options, three ocean-like sounds, and have the ability to customize these sounds to their particular needs. Relief sound levels can be adjusted on the hearing aid itself or by using the Oticon ON smartphone app.
Existing OPN users can have their hearing aids updated with Tinnitus SoundSupportTM via a firmware update, and are advised to contact their hearing care professional for more information.
