Many of our Habituation Retraining Therapy (HaRT) patients benefit from an ear-worn sound therapy device, for comfort and convenience, while getting relief from their ringing ears. These devices come in several different styles. We can help you determine whether one of these may be a good option for you as part of your treatment plan.
It is important to recognize that a device is only part of the overall HaRT treatment program. Information about how and when to use it, what to expect and when, and adjustment issues will be covered by your TTS audiologist during your patient education sessions.
Ear-worn sound therapy devices:
We know that statistically, most tinnitus sufferers also have some hearing loss. But individually, there is great variation with respect to which issue each patient feels is most bothersome. For those who suffer most from their tinnitus, an ear-worn device without amplification may suffice; For those who also suffer from bothersome hearing loss, an ear-worn device with amplification can be helpful in addressing both conditions at the same time.
I went to so many places... No one that I talked to was able to do anything with the tinnitus. I was told I couldn’t get a hearing aid, that it wouldn’t help or that I needed two hearing aids when my problem was just with one. I’ve already experienced a time where my tinnitus was practically, totally gone. This is a great program!
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you. [My wife’s] sleep was so much more improved with the sound generator in use (we set it to the ocean setting). She only woke up once in a semi panic, which is so much better than she has been since this whole situation started. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness, support and concern. This gives us great hope that in fact there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
