ReSound Introduces Alera TS(TM) Hearing Aid for Tinnitus Management


9/12/2011 8:25:13 AM

BLOOMINGTON, MN--(Marketwire - September 12, 2011) -

http://www.gnresound.com -- ReSound, the technology leader in hearing aid solutions, has introduced a combination hearing instrument to its Alera® product line.

Alera TS™ combines an advanced hearing aid with a Tinnitus Sound Generator (TSG). The TSG is used to administer sounds that make the disturbing tinnitus noise less noticeable, drawing your attention away from it. This is a common approach in Sound Therapy.

"Alera TS™ helps change the way you respond to tinnitus by diverting your attention away from it," said Michael Piskosz, M.S., ReSound. "This kind of sound therapy when combined with informed counseling is recognized as a highly effective way of managing tinnitus."

Alera TS™ provides flexibility for individualized Sound Therapy. As each case of tinnitus is unique, hearing professionals can customize Alera TS™ to address the personalized needs of each tinnitus sufferer.

Tinnitus is the most prevalent physical disability reported by military service members and veterans. Previously, there were very few devices that could treat both hearing loss and tinnitus in one instrument -- and these devices didn't have the flexibility to adapt to the diverse tinnitus management protocols that are most commonly practiced today.

Strong benefits in tinnitus management have been reported when using the TSG feature. 83% of VA audiologists reported a significant or satisfactory improvement in tinnitus symptoms after activating the Tinnitus Sound Generator feature.

"10 - 15% of the World's population suffers from unwanted sounds associated with tinnitus," said Piskosz. "These people now have a flexible solution, and no longer have to live with tinnitus interrupting their daily lives."
