Introducing New AGX Hearing Technology for Treatment of Tinnitus
Audiology and Hearing Aids of the Palm Beaches is pleased to announce the latest technology solution for the treatment of tinnitus, the AGXs3sTinnitus.
Tinnitus, or “ringing in the ears,” is a debilitating symptom that impacts millions of Americans. Tinnitus causes a person to hear ringing or buzzing in their ears or in their head despite there being no external source of the sounds. Many people who experience tinnitus also express a heightened sensitivity to external noise. While its cause cannot always be determined, tinnitus is often the result of extreme noise exposure, hearing loss, head and neck injury or medications. Of those affected by tinnitus, 85% suffer from measurable hearing loss.
The AGXs3sTinnitus delivers two treatment solutions to the user in a single, nearly invisible, hearing device: tinnitus therapy plus hearing aid. The AGXs3sTinnitus uses the patent-pending Multiflex Tinnitus Technology designed by Starkey® Hearing Technologies to help manage the symptoms of Tinnitus.Based on patient preference, the technology delivers a customizable sound stimulus to provide relief to the user. Using this device in combination with education and counseling, patients often find relief.
While tinnitus is quite common, the number of individuals who seek treatment for their condition is small. “There is a common misconception that tinnitus is untreatable,” says Dana Luzon, Au.D., CCC-A. “As an AudigyCertifiedTM hearing care provider, I can provide comprehensive hearing testing, analyze the severity of the tinnitus, make recommendations, and develop a plan for treatment.”
