      Hi folk
      Do they start a new trial? Did I miss something?

      You ask too many questions. They did start. I spoke with someone who's on the trial.

      @Allan1967 Is Susan Shore lacking in funding? What is going on?

      They haven't said they are lacking in funding, but they i.e. all of the researchers are always open to and welcome donations.

      I just found out that the trial isn't up yet. They are still interviewing candidates with the audiologist, then to have an appointment with the ENT, and awaiting for the devices...

      I think they already have around 200 people in their interviews.

      They will be choosing from those. The participant told me they are very slow in the process, and was told by the audiologist that they still are waiting for the devices.

      By the way, I'm out of this thread... I have no hope for Susan Shore's device. If I get any information I will post it but I'm done with Susan Shore's lack of regenerative medicine and woeful organization.

      You are such a fake news source. You told me earlier that they had already started their trial. Lame.

      Well don't blame me. If you want you can contact Susan Shore directly.

      They don't have the devices but were told the devices were already in their lab... so they were lied to. That's about it. I'm sure you don't need to read my post. I'm sorry if it caused misunderstanding but I deliver the information that I got.

      Don't be mad at me, be mad at tinnitus.

      I have lots of hope/faith that bimodal somatosensory stimulation is the answer for my situation. I’ve followed this pretty closely. I kinda didn’t believe the clinicaltrials.gov website when it said this study was slated to end in 2022 or 2023. Apparently that is sounding realistic after all. I was telling myself that Susan Shore was the one to stick with on this.

      I don’t know how long Neuromod will take to get it’s product widely available in the US, but I doubt it takes this long. If the second coming of the MuteButton gets acceptable results I may have to jump ship.

      They’ve been researching many disorders for years and still haven’t found out the many phenomena of certain diseases. Not being negative by the way, just being realistic. Just an example, antidepressants and antipsychotics are known to work, but the exact mechanism is a theory. Same with other diseases, a lot of it is theory.

      Nevertheless, she’s a bright woman who has contributed a lot to us.

      You can find out about the new trial in the link below. It is mentioned towards the end. She basically says it will start in the fall and will finish at the end of next year, and from there she will look to get it ready for commercial release. It’s being done to refine the technique and to further investigate and prove her work.

      https://www.ata.org/podcasts/episode-7-breakthrough-using-multisensory-stimulation-reduce-tinnitus

      It’s well worth listening to if you are interested in her tinnitus research. She also talks about her research into cochlear synaptopathy (hidden hearing loss) at the end.

      It’s also worth reading this if you’re interested in her hidden hearing loss work.

      I agree, Allan. I support research all the time and think they are all worthy causes. However, if you want the most bang for your buck, it would be wise to look for researchers who need seed money for new innovative projects. That’s not to say we can’t do both, but it’s something you should think about.

      Tinniger, could you please translate the document and explain to us the reason why they are skeptical?

      Thanks.

      German ENTs are completely useless when it comes to tinnitus and hyperacusis. Most of them seem to think that everyone can ignore or reduce their tinnitus to a low level as long as the patient keeps their stress levels low. They don’t follow new research, they are always skeptical and cynical. The tone of the article is a bit condescending.

      That guy is working for a ‘tinnitus clinic’, of course he’s against any real medical treatment.

      At the end he stresses that psychological treatment/training is nonetheless essential for habituating. Sure, otherwise he loses his job. Because that’s what German ENTs think tinnitus patients need: psychotherapy, nothing more.

      Where does the view come from that things are better in other countries?

      I do not know if Susan Shore's device will help me, because my T is not somatic but I think we are closer to getting a cure or at least something that reduces our problem.

      Some "Tinnitus specialists" are pessimistic because they may not want to update or stop selling the "treatments" they have been offering for years.

      Ahaha yea, altough some healthy scepticism is surely not wrong, this text reads just absolutely unnecessary negative. Nice how near the end he points to his own publication about audiotherapy and habitaution. Thanks, no thanks.

      ".....healing expectations are inappropriate". Just like his own treatments, right?;)
