Tinnitus management/therapy has been around for 20 years or more. It uses a very similar approach to chronic pain management, as both use the same information pathways in the brain.
There is a good amount of research in both fields to show that this process works.

Combination Hearing Aids

Gatwick Audiology fit combination devices if these were identified as the best treatment approach. These are White noise generators within a hearing aid. These are fitted when people find that their tinnitus is still very intrusive even when they are wearing a hearing aid. We know that sounds like white noise and pink noise can help reduce the loudness of the tinnitus. These modern devices allow us to set up the noise with or without the hearing aid switched on, allow us to adjust the type of noise you hear and the loudness of it.


Tinnitus Counselling

We have helped many patients to manage their tinnitus much better with a combination of counselling, reassurance and appropriate treatment approach. Some patients will need further onwards referral on to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to manage their anxiety and depression which we organise if this deem necessary.

 

Tinnitus Treatment - Lenire

Tinnitus is a common medical condition, affecting 10-15% of the population. In simple terms, it is the perception of sound when there is no external source. For some, tinnitus is an issue that builds gradually. For others, it can present itself quite suddenly. It can be a temporary affliction or one that, unfortunately for some, becomes an ongoing issue.

Lenire is a treatment device proven in large-scale clinical trials to reduce the symptoms of tinnitus. Use it from the comfort of home to manage your tinnitus with the help of a qualified healthcare professional. Soothing sounds and gentle electrical stimulation retrain your brain to pay less attention to your tinnitus.
It uses bimodal neuromodulation to reduce the severity of tinnitus symptoms. It delivers mild electrical pulses to the tongue combined with sound played through headphones to drive long-term changes or neuroplasticity in the brain to treat tinnitus.

Headphones

Bluetooth headphones, which are provided, deliver customised sounds to activate the auditory nerve to the brain.

Tonguetip

The Tonguetip, specifically designed to treat tinnitus, sits comfortably in the closed mouth. Tiny electrodes on the Tonguetip deliver mild and safe energy pulses to the surface of the tip of the tongue.

Controller

A lightweight handheld device that controls the timing and intensity of the treatment. You can start, pause and resume the treatment session, adjust the volume of the sound, and adjust the level of the tongue stimulation. The settings are customised by your Audiologist to suit your tinnitus after an assessment.



Please note: Each Lenire device is tailored specifically for each patient based on their hearing profile. Therefore, the device needs to be prescribed/purchased through our Audiology team after a detailed tinnitus consultation.
