Confirmation of efficacy and safety of acoustic CR®-neuromodulation for the treatment of chronic tinnitus patients using the CE marked ANM T30 CR®-system in a real life outpatient setting.

  • Identification of early indicators for therapy success
  • Comparison of different patient groups regarding: tinnitus severity, tinnitus duration, level of hearing loss, stimulation patterns, unilateral monotonal vs. all other complex forms
  • Representative set of safety data in a broad patient spectrum
  • Measurement of tinnitus burden (TBF-12 Questionnaire)
  • Generation of longterm compliance data
