Oticon have developed a range of aids designed to help people with hearing loss and/or tinnitus, such as their popular sound app, which lets you download a selection of different relief sounds to your phone or computer.
One of their products is the Tinnitus SoundSupport system, a sophisticated combination hearing aid and sound generator device which Ilse demonstrated for us. Users can choose the types and levels of sounds that work best for them ranging from ocean-themed sounds to white, pink and red noise. The system works in combination with a hearing aid or as a standalone device. Coupled with counselling materials that support sound therapy, and the expertise of a hearing care professional, the Oticon package has been shown to provide relief for many tinnitus sufferers.

Our thanks to Ilse for coming over to talk to us about these exciting new developments in tinnitus management and treatment.
