T30 neurostimulator device for chronic tonal subjective tinnitus

March 2013


The T30 neurostimulator device is a new device designed to treat tinnitus. It is intended to reverse changes in the brain thought to be associated with chronic subjective tonal tinnitus. Whilst currently available therapies are helpful to some patients, many find these therapies to be ineffective. It is thought that inappropriately synchronised signalling by groups of nerve cells may be one of the changes in brain activity involved in tinnitus. This is the first therapy designed to reverse this process. Early studies suggest that this device may be effective but further research is needed to know for certain what the benefits of this technology may be.
