In the context of the study "Shades of Noise", the Tinnitus Centre of Regensburg, Germany, provides tinnitus patients with several sounds included in a smartphone app to affect their individual tinnitus. In this way patients can find the best auditory stimulus to suppress their tinnitus.
As a pilot study in the UNITI project, Shades of Noise aims to describe the effect of auditory stimulation on tinnitus.
We are currently looking for study participants all around the world! If you
- are older than 18 years
- already have tinnitus for more than 6 months
- have a smartphone with headphones
- are willing to participate in the study for 12 weeks
- are familiar with the english language
Please note: As the UNITI project study will start in 2021 involving the study centres in Leuven (Belgium), Berlin and Regensburg (Germany), Athens (Greece) and Granada (Spain), we recommend that interested patients from these towns (or patients who are living in driving distance to these towns) do not participate in this pilot but in the UNITI project study itself next year.
