Lyric and Tinnitus Study
Could Lyric help with Tinnitus?
Results from a study with Lyric and Tinnitus sufferers have indicated that Lyric wearers noticed a reduction in their overall tinnitus perception within 24 hours of their fitting in addition to improved hearing.
Lyric is a 100% invisible, 24/7 hearing device worn for months at a time.
As Lyric is placed 4mm from your eardrum, it uses the anatomy of your ear to naturally deliver sound amplification.
Tinnitus is the phantom perception of sound with no identifiable sound source, it has an estimated 10-14% prevalence worldwide.
Research indicates that 80% of tinnitus patients have an underlying hearing loss of which many are not aware.
Fortunately, only 1% of tinnitus sufferers have severely debilitating symptoms warranting further medical and professional intervention.
Studies have shown that in treating the hearing loss, the tinnitus becomes less noticeable.
Phonak Switzerland invited Ann Kelly Hearing to become involved in a three-month Tinnitus Research Study which is currently underway. We will share our interesting findings from our research study with you in our next newsletter!
