ReSound LiNX iPhone Compatible Aid Available Now At London Hearing Aids
We are now booking in patients for demonstrations of the revolutionary ReSound LiNX 9 and ReSound LiNX 7. This new model range is a world first - the first "Made For iPhone" or MFi hearing aid. (See below for price)
It's Different To Everything That Has Come Before
Why is this model different? The ReSound LiNX can pair directly with the iPhone (4s or newer), and the new iPod touch and iPad. Previously, hearing aids from all manufacturers would need an intermediate device, worn either around the neck as a necklace, or clipped on to a lapel.
The London Tinnitus Treatment Clinic are proud to announce that we are now a SoundCure Certified Provider, and can assess and fit patients at our Harley Street consulting rooms. The recommended schedule includes an assessment & fitting, a follow-up after one week, a further follow-up after one month, and then every six months or as the patient requires.
To book an assessment and fitting appointment, please call us on 020 7467 8473.
So, who are SoundCure and what is different about their new device? Other tinnitus sound therapy devices were inspired by theories and then research was formulated to try to demonstrate their effectiveness. The Serenade® on the other hand is a medical device that was born out of research that started in 2006, when researchers at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) began working with a patient with a cochlear implant who was suffering from tinnitus. Traditional treatment approaches were attempted, but failed to provide relief. They then applied a pitch-matched amplitude modulated sound, at a comfortable loudness via the patient’s cochlear implant and discovered that this relieved the patient’s tinnitus–for the first time in two years, all he heard was a calming, pleasant tone produced by the low-rate stimulus. Transferring this technology from a cochlear implant to sounds anyone could hear led to the creation of S-Tones®, the foundation of the SoundCure Serenade® technology.
Could this be the most beautiful tinnitus treatment device in the world?
I was privileged to be invited to the launch of Unitron's new Moxi Kiss tinnitus treatment combination device at the Raddison Blu Edwardian hotel in London.
