Tinnitus is the perception of a sound when there is no external source of noise. There are many possible causes and types of tinnitus, which makes finding a cure for tinnitus difficult.
At least one in every ten adults experiences tinnitus
The Tinnitus Experience
The experience of tinnitus varies greatly from person to person; what it sounds like, how unpleasant it can be and how much tinnitus intrudes on daily life.
Few Options Until Now
It is often said that there is no cure for tinnitus, but that does not mean that there is nothing that can be done. Lenire has been shown to soothe and relieve tinnitus in large clinical trials in Ireland and Germany.
What is Lenire?
Convenient and easy to use, Lenire can provide sustainable relief from tinnitus.
Is Lenire right for you?
Lenire is a non-invasive home-use medical device that has CE-mark certification for the treatment of tinnitus under the supervision of an appropriately qualified healthcare professional.
Your clinician will evaluate your tinnitus and determine if Lenire is right for you. If Lenire is recommended, your clinician will prescribe a treatment plan that typically includes daily 30 minute sessions and at least two follow up visits over the course of three months, when your clinician may adjust device settings to optimise the potential for relief.
Clinical trials show 80.1% of participants who used Lenire as directed achieved an improvement of their Tinnitus Handicap Inventory score that continued for 12 months after treatment.
Lenire is a CE-marked medical device with three main parts
A lightweight, handheld device that controls the time and intensity of the treatment.
This is a proprietary intra-oral device, ergonomically designed to sit comfortably in the closed mouth. Tiny electrodes on the tonguetip deliver mild and safe energy pulses to the trigeminal nerves via the surface of the tip of the tongue.
Bluetooth headphones deliver customised sounds
AKG is a registered trademark of Harman International - Harman International (harman.com), is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co, LTD. AKG Headphones are supplied with the Lenire device.
Understanding the Technology
Customised sounds are played through Bluetooth® headphones to activate the nerve involved in hearing (the auditory nerve)
Mild and safe energy pulses are delivered to the surface of the tip of the tongue to activate touch nerves (mainly the trigeminal nerve)
The activated nerves convert the sound and the energy pulses into signals that are relayed to the brain, where over time the unique signal patterns work to reduce and soothe the perceived tinnitus experience
