Tinnitus Specific Therapy and as an adjunct to other modalities

Catalyst: Brain Plasticity

UltraQuiet™ reprograms the brain.

Strategy and Science

Platform Strategy

  • Tinnitus mode

Related products

  • Speech perception mode
  • Music perception mode

Safe, effective treatment; no side effects

Patent pending technology:

Wearable and desk top versions

Novel, pulsed, patterned, high frequency

Tinnitus is a byproduct of neural reprogramming. Pulsed, patterned, high frequency stimulation allows a reconversion of high frequency neurons "asleep" after peripheral loss.

Reconversion occurs throughout the neural axis. The high frequency "awakening" is both pleasant and effective in treating the brain pathways that maintain tinnitus. Those with hearing loss can re-experience high fidelity, high pitched music and speech

Pulsed patterned high frequency therapy
  • Safe and convenient
  • Tinnitus suppression
  • Residual inhibition
  • Long term management
Actual pulsed pattern frequencies

Long term rating of Tinnitus severity with Ultraquiet™ therapy
