What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus, while perceived in the ear, actually occurs in the brain. When the delicate hair cells inside the cochlea are damaged or over stimulated, the result is tinnitus. To date, there is no cure for this condition. The number of people affected is growing fast and statistics show that one in five people suffer from tinnitus. Tinnitus is also the leading “souvenir” that veterans retain from service.

Although tinnitus is often described as ‘ringing in the ears’, the variety of sounds and combinations that people perceive are as widespread as the condition. The onset and cause is as varied as the sounds people hear. Regardless of how it began and what it sounds like, tinnitus can range from a bothersome condition to a debilitating one, impacting not only the day–to–day lives of the individuals affected, but their families and loved ones as well.

How does the Levo System help?

This is where the Levo System comes in. Through a series of interactive activities, the precise sound of your tinnitus will be identified, giving you the means to understand and demonstrate to others the sound you live with. Your unique sound is then used to create an individualized therapy for you to use at home while you sleep.

User-friendly, patented Levo software on a provided Apple iPod Touch will allow you to listen to your personalized sound match at home. Custom fit ear buds, designed to ensure comfort during sleep, allow for optimal positioning and controlled delivery of sound therapy. Used nightly, you will be able to share your individualized progress and determine needed improvements over time.
