An app can change the lives of those affected by tinnitus
- Millions of people have been told to there is nothing they can do about their tinnitus.
- That’s bad advice and for many it leads to more stress anxiety and depression.
- With specialist psychological support you can train your brain to ignore tinnitus. But that’s expensive and not widely available.
- Now, a research team led by the University of Auckland have developed an app that, in a trial published today in Frontiers in Audiology and Otology, reduced the impact of tinnitus in two-thirds of users in weeks.
