Following a 3rd large clinical trial, Lenire becomes the only device of its kind to be awarded a De Novo FDA Grant. 3

Founding Neuromod Devices

Dr. Ross O’Neill became interested in tinnitus during his Biomedical Engineering PhD. Speaking with those who were profoundly effected by tinnitus piqued his interest.

Dr. O’Neill became alarmed at the limited treatment options available for a condition that affects 10 – 15% of the global population. Tinnitus patients were trapped on a referral carousel from family doctor to ENT to audiologist and back again. Change was needed.

Dr. O’Neill’s PhD investigated auditory and somatic system interaction. The aim was to discover how neuromodulation could treat tinnitus. After his PhD, Dr. O’Neill formed Neuromod Devices to develop Lenire.
