Signia Tinnitus Therapy Options
Tinnitus and hearing loss often go hand-in-hand. For those patients whose tinnitus is not mitigated by amplification alone, Signia hearing aids offer hearing care professionals three types of tinnitus therapy approaches to customize for each patient. Static Noise and Ocean Wave signals are both sound therapy approaches that have been proven to provide relief for many tinnitus patients. Notch Therapy is a new and proprietary method proven to be especially effective for the relief of tonal tinnitus.
Signia offers five static noise presets including: white noise, pink noise, Brownian noise, high-tone noise, and Speech noise.
Modulated Noise: Ocean Waves
The four Ocean Wave signals are named after different types of beaches, and differ primarily in terms of the intensity and frequency of the modulation, or breaking waves.
In cases of tinnitus associated with stress, some patients have found better results with the more organic Ocean Wave signals than static noise.
Tonal tinnitus, which includes all types of pure-tone like whistling, ringing or humming, is the most common form of tinnitus. Unlike traditional sound therapy which introduces another acoustic stimulus to the patient, Notch Therapy is inaudible and works in the background to relieve the annoyance of tinnitus. By simply wearing the hearing aids with Notch Therapy activated throughout the day, patients have experienced relief from tinnitus in as few as three weeks.
