ReSound’s wireless hearing aid, the Alera, is now available with a tinnitus treatment option.
Tinnitus causes ringing in the ears and affects about 15% of the world’s population. It is the most prevalent physical condition reported by military service members and veterans.
The Bluetooth Alera TS combines an advanced hearing aid with a Tinnitus Sound Generator. The technology is used to administer sounds that make the disturbing tinnitus noise less noticeable, drawing your attention away from it. Over time, it can help retrain your brain to not notice the tinnitus even when you aren’t wearing the instrument.
“This kind of sound therapy when combined with informed counseling is recognized as a highly effective way of managing tinnitus,” said Michael Piskosz, M.S., ReSound.
The cause of tinnitus is unknown, but more than 80% report a significant or satisfactory improvement in tinnitus symptoms after using the Tinnitus Sound Generator feature, studies show.
The Alera also uses accessories to play sound wirelessly from your television, phones and computer directly into your hearing aids. It is available in custom, receiver in the ear and remote microphone styles and is available in three different technology levels.
“These people now have a flexible solution, and no longer have to live with tinnitus interrupting their daily lives,” Piskosz said.
