The Role of Healthcare Professionals

The Lenire tinnitus treatment device is used as part of a treatment plan prescribed and supervised by a qualified healthcare professional. From the very first assessment, healthcare professionals such as Audiologists, Acousticians, Consultant Otolaryngologists or ENT surgeons tailor the treatment to achieve the best outcome for the patient.

  1. Initial Assessment

    HideShow

    Patients get an audiometric evaluation and tinnitus assessment from their healthcare professional to see if Lenire is suitable for them. Lenire will not be suitable for every patient so the healthcare professional may decide to refer them to other treatments.

  2. Device Fitting

    HideShow

    If Lenire is deemed suitable and prescribed by the healthcare professional, Lenire’s audio and tongue stimulations are configured and calibrated to the patient’s characteristics by the healthcare professional during the initial fitting appointment. This allows the healthcare professional to tailor the treatment to the individual patient based on their hearing profile and tinnitus experience.

    There are follow up appointments, after the fitting appointment, so the healthcare professional can monitor how the patient is progressing with treatment.

  3. Follow-up Appointments

    HideShow

    A follow-up appointment with the patient should take place approximately six to 12 weeks into the treatment plan. Another follow-up appointment should take place a further six to 12 weeks after the first.

    This allows the healthcare professional to assess the patient’s progress. It’s possible the healthcare professional may decide to change the configuration of Lenire’s stimulation during a follow up appointment to get the best outcome for the patient.

    If the patient has any issues throughout the treatment plan, it’s important that they contact their healthcare professional as a visit may be required in which the device’s stimulation settings are readjusted.

  4. Continued Use

    At the end of the prescribed treatment plan, the healthcare professional will advise each patient on their continued use of the Lenire device thereafter.
