Lenire: A New Approach to Tinnitus Treatment

Lenire, a product of Neuromod Devices Ltd, is an evidence-based treatment device designed to soothe tinnitus. This device uses a novel approach known as bimodal neuromodulation to mitigate the symptoms of tinnitus.

The concept of bimodal neuromodulation revolves around the simultaneous stimulation of two types of nerves. In the case of Lenire, these are the auditory nerves (via sound) and the trigeminal nerve (via mild electrical impulses on the tongue).

Components of the Lenire Device

Lenire consists of three main components: 

  • Tonguetip: A specially designed component that sits comfortably within the mouth. It contains tiny electrodes that deliver mild electrical pulses to the surface of the tongue, thereby stimulating the trigeminal nerve.
  • Bluetooth Headphones: These headphones deliver customized sounds designed to stimulate the auditory nerves, transmitting signals to the brain.
  • Controller: A handheld device that allows users to manage the timing and intensity of the treatment. The controller enables users to start, pause, and resume the treatment session. It also allows adjustment of the sound volume and the level of tongue stimulation.

The settings on the Lenire device are customized by a qualified healthcare professional to suit an individual's specific tinnitus condition.

The Science Behind Lenire: How Does It Work?

Lenire works by delivering sounds via headphones and gentle electrical pulses on the tongue simultaneously. This combined stimulation helps to retrain the brain, reducing the focus on the tinnitus and thereby lessening its impact on daily life. This strategy hinges on the concept of neuroplasticity, which refers to the brain's ability to adapt to new experiences and learn from them. By fostering positive neuroplasticity in areas of the brain associated with tinnitus, Lenire facilitates a significant reduction in tinnitus symptom severity.

The Research Supporting Lenire: Clinical Trials & Success Rates

Lenire's effectiveness as a tinnitus treatment device has been proven through extensive clinical trials. It is the first device of its kind to receive a grant of approval from the FDA for tinnitus treatment. The large-scale clinical trials conducted to meet the FDA's stringent requirements revealed that 83% of patients recommended Lenire for tinnitus treatment. These trials' results were consistent with real-world evidence gathered from over 200 patients, further reinforcing Lenire's effectiveness.

The Lenire Experience: Patient Success Stories

A significant number of patients who have used Lenire for tinnitus treatment have reported positive outcomes. The treatment has not only mitigated the severity of their tinnitus but also improved their overall quality of life. By reducing the constant noise associated with tinnitus, Lenire has empowered individuals to regain control of their lives, allowing them to enjoy social activities, concentrate better, and experience more restful sleep.

Is Lenire the Right Solution for You?

While Lenire has proven to be a promising solution for tinnitus, it's crucial to remember that tinnitus is a complex condition and the effectiveness of treatment can vary from one individual to another. Therefore, an assessment by a healthcare professional is required to determine the suitability of Lenire as a treatment option.
