  Tinnitus Therapy

About this app

Tinnitus is a rather chronic condition/disorder which is difficult to treat. As many tinnitus treatments combine counseling with sound therapy, we have designed an app named "Tinnitus Therapy" to help with the latter part of a possible healing process. The custom sound stimuli generated by our app can help decrease the volume of your tinnitus over weeks. There are three main sections: the first one helps users detect their tinnitus frequency, while the other two consist of several tone generators whose volume and frequency can be tuned to match the patient's specific data.   

 

           

 

How to find out your tinnitus frequency

To find out the exact frequency of your pure-tone tinnitus, simply follow these easy steps:
- connect and wear your headphones properly (check the R and L labels)
- move to a quiet area, stop any other sound or music apps
- set a sufficient phone's media volume, a medium level may be enough for now
- set the Stereo option from Settings if you hear your tinnitus differently on the left and right ear
- tap the big Play button (the bottom region of the screen) to start the tone generator
- gently swipe up and down the volume controls of the generator to match the respective volume of your tinnitus

- gently swipe up and down the frequency controls of the generator to match the respective frequency of your tinnitus
- tap the big Stop button when you finish all the adjustments
- re-detect your tinnitus frequency from time to time

 

     

 

How to use the four tone generators

There are four signal generators that can help you get relief from tinnitus by emitting a random succession of lower and higher tones.
- if the Automatic option is set, their frequency is automatically computed as of two lower and respective higher musical notes around the previously determined frequency of your tinnitus
- if the Manual option is set, the frequencies of the four generators can be adjusted by swiping up and down their respective controls.
- tap the big Play button (the bottom region of the screen) to start the four tone generators

- tap the big Stop button to stop the "melody" or the minute counter to reset the timer
- start with 1 or 2 minutes long sessions and slowly increase the therapy duration over time, up to one hour per day

 

How to use the noise generators

There are two additional generators that are emitting filtered white and pink noises. The frequency of your tinnitus is removed from these wide-spectrum signals of audible frequencies.
- if the Automatic option is set, your tinnitus frequency is automatically removed from the white and pink noises; however, the volume controls of the generators are still available
- if the Manual option is set, the rejected frequencies can now be adjusted by swiping up and down their respective controls.
- tap the big Play button (the bottom region of the screen) to start the noise generators

- tap the big Stop button to stop the noise generators or the minute counter to reset the timer
- start with 1 or 2 minutes long sessions and slowly increase the therapy duration over time, up to one hour per day
