      I think Cochlearity AB missed the memo where it said white noise machines belong to 1990s when it comes to treating tinnitus...

      Jesus f'king Christ! That company is obsolete from the get go.

      Yeah I don't think that this is necessarily a pleasant looking thing to have on you lol.

      If it is helpful in the short-term then fantastic, although I think that over time this might not last very long by the looks of it.

      Not even trying to be funny, it looks like a metal nut inside a rubber gasket with adhesive on the back.

      Oh, perhaps that’s actually what it is since it says adhesive evaluation??? Because it doesn’t look the same as the product development phase photo.

      What you see (nut and plastic) is a weight aiming to simulate the device which is a part of the product development strategy where user experience is analyzed.

      To stay tuned, follow the project on the company's website or on LinkedIn and Facebook.

      Are you involved with Cochlearity AB? Will you be handing out free products for people to test here? When is it going to be launched and what is the price?

      It's apparently a bone conduction masking device. I would probably prefer that to a hearing-aid style noise generator. I find those very awkward to use. This one is described as a band-aid placed behind the ear.

      Nobody involved in the project seems to have any medical qualifications at all. They seem to be marketing experts? Let's see what the device can do I guess...

      Yes, I´m involved in the company. As a part of the product development, a number of people with tinnitus will test the device. For various reasons, these should be nearby, i.e. in southern Sweden and we already have many people who are interested.

      The design of the device will be completed in early 2021. The goal is that the device is completed and CE marked by December 2021. The price has not been determined yet.
