Silencing tinnitus

Help design our revolutionary treatment for tinnitus

MindSpire has been awarded a grant from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) for a feasibility study into its game changing treatment for tinnitus, working in partnership with the Brighton & Sussex Medical School & University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust.

Tinnitus, which is described as a ringing or buzzing sound not caused by a real external sound, affects over 13% of adults (7 million people) in the UK with 1% severely affecting their quality of life. There is currently no cure.

It is often associated with age related hearing loss & is repeatedly the number one disability among military service personnel who have experienced noise exposure. 

There are over 1 million GP visits each year in the UK  and in the most recent survey by Tinnitus UK, 82% respondents said they were unhappy with their treatment.

We will be using our expertise in personalised stimulation of the vagus nerve to help the auditory cortex, the region of the brain involved in processing sounds replace the ringing or buzzing sounds by playing specific tones played through our headphones. To reduce the stress that many tinnitus sufferers experience, we will also deploy our breathtaking science, a data driven approach clinically demonstrated to reduce stress, to work alongside the paired stimulation and sound therapy.
