What are the possible benefits of using the App?

As a benefit you'll have an app which might help you to manage your tinnitus! With the App you can generate Tailors, personally tailored audio sounds: the app plays random modifications of different sounds and you teach it which of these sounds are useful for you. You can play them back whenever you like and create as many variations as you like. However, We are still in the early stages of developing the App. The effectiveness of the App is so far unproven as there is only feedback from a handful of subjects. You acknowledge that the App is not a medical device and we do not claim that the app will treat or alleviate tinnitus. The App is not meant to replace professional, legal or medical advice, or advice on any other subject which a professional may give or have given.

What are the possible risks?

Playing audio has an inherent risk as high volumes might cause tinnitus. Since the cause of tinnitus is largely unknown, listening to the audio bears a small risk that it might make your tinnitus worse. We minimise the risks of this happening by setting the initial sound volume to very quiet and giving you the control, it's up to you to increase it to higher volumes.

Placebos

From time to time we will test to see if this app is better than just playing some audio or white noise. In order to test this, the app might just play the original sounds without your personal training which act here as a 'placebo'. We then compare the listening durations and retention times between the placebo sound and your actual personalised Tailors and use this info to show that the app actually is effective. This will help us immensely to improve the app and will show that the app is helpful. We will only turn one of your Tailors into a placebo, if you have recorded a few Tailors you will naturally switch to another one!
