Resaphene Suisse AG: Breakthrough in Tinnitus Therapy

Share:

With publication in the specialist magazine for complementary medicine
CO.med 06/2018 informed Johannes Ebbers from Düren (Germany) on the
results of his clinical user observation with the tinnitus therapy
device tinniwell.

Since 2016 Resaphene Suisse AG (Vienna Stock Exchange: CH0367465439)
sells the tinniwell. The device can be used by the patient in the home
environment or even mobile. It combines the approach of heat and music
therapy in a device, which was registered for a patent. In addition, it
can determine the exact frequency of tinnitus in the patient.
Competitors who work with apps are usually only able to do this on an
indicative basis, which is why the therapy does not succeed there.

Between October 2016 and July 2017, 30 patients with chronic
decompensated tinnitus were recruited. The subjects in the study were
between 17 and 72 years old and had previously undergone various
examinations (e.g., otoneurological evaluation); Exclusion criterion was
for example an organic cause of tinnitus.

At the start of the therapy, the participants determined the severity of
tinnitus using the Göbel and Hiller mini-questionaire. During the
four-week therapy period, the tinniwell should be used for at least 30
minutes daily, and light activities such as reading and so on were
permitted.

After 6 weeks at the latest, the tinnitus severity was again determined
in the patients. 1 participant broke off without giving reasons, which
allowed to collect the data from 29 participants. On average, tinnitus
decreased by 54.1%. The range of results was between 100% (complete
relief) and 20% improvement.

"The results of user observation encourage us to conduct a double-blind
study in the next step," says Anke Rauterkus, CEO of Resaphene Suisse
AG. "The key to the success of the therapy is the combination of warmth
and frequency-filtered music. Meanwhile, the prototype for the third
series of tinniwell has been developed. The new generation of devices is
considerably smaller and will have interfaces to smartphones and other
devices in the future."
