      1.) yes

      2.) it’s stimulating both the auditory system (via headphones) and in Neuromod's case - the trigeminal nerve in the tongue via a tongue tip. It is hypothesised that this process induces plasticity (changes to the brain) that can be used to treat tinnitus by reversing changes that have taken place when tinnitus develops.

      If you go on Neuromod's Web Page, there is a video of professor Hubert Lim who explains how the treatment works.

      BLIMEY!
      Talk about trial and error!
      Where’s the science for this?
      Sounds pretty scant to me.
      I wonder how the Lego Bricks research is coming on.......?

      The research has shown promise in both animal and human studies and is a promising new treatment on the horizon.

      Thank you bud.

      Quite honestly I can’t be fagged to read up on research, I leave that to you guys with a scientific mind.

      To tell you the truth, I have always regarded it as being ‘the guy in the open boat peering out at the horizon for land.’

      Horizon watching.

      Don’t get me wrong.

      I will be deeply interested if it happens.
      But in the mean time I have found ways to survive through deep relaxation and meditation.

      We have to survive the - ‘here and now.’

      Thank you for responding, despite my cynical skepticism.
      You must be a ‘gent.’

      Tinnitus Since:

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Possibly from problems with blood flow
      Steroids + HBOT + Ipidacrine into my ears + a cocktail of IV drugs to improve blood flow.

      Hearing loss was recent and I was in the time frame when it might help.

      Most likely I had unilateral SSNHL and acoustic trauma a month later.

      So when we all ascend on Dublin like a bunch of earmuff-wearing Visigoths, should we all join up for a drink? I'm assuming no music will be required, so maybe a Whetherspoons?

      Definitely the case for me. I'm sure I've gradually damaged my hearing, but my brain's been able to keep up until the sudden burst beginning of December.

      I see there is a Belgian professor involved as well, it's Sven Vanneste who is a member of the brain clinic in Belgium.

      I sent him a mail asking for a release date.

      People might also want to ask one of the co-authors to give us a sense of "Safety and Long-Term Efficacy" of the device...

      I do wonder about that. If your tinnitus is completely gone after, say 12 weeks, do you keep using it?

      Thanks Agatha. I obviously missed that part of the video.

      I guess you could just keep it in the closet for future spikes.

      Sounds like a plan. However if you come to Dublin City and out of all the fine Irish pubs choose Wetherspoons need I finish the sentence!

      Well, we'll need to find a place that plays no music, lest we all get spikes. I suppose we could go to a library and use our Neuromods at the same time like a bunch of dorks.

      They don’t cooperate. They are separate entities. I think I recall Brai3n was part of some vague nerve stimulation though (I may be wrong) and was it Sven Vanneste or someone else who collaborated with Dirk de Ridder in VNS?

      Anyway it achieved mixed results. Neuromod is much more interesting at this stage.

      I see that they already presented at the Baltimore conference.

      Has anybody read a report of what they talked about?

      And can one device be used by more than one person?

      I meant Sven Vanneste who works for Brai3n and apparently cooperates with Neuromod which can mean at least part of the science behind both entities have common background.

      Brai3n uses QEEG to diagnose and some kind of neuromodulation to treat tinnitus.

      They are introducing it to USA! Yes!

      I just had a QEEG test done this past Saturday. It is exactly what Dr. Shulman in Brooklyn, NY uses to diagnose and treat tinnitus. Let's see how it goes.

      I didn't even expect an answer to my mail but I already got a reply today from Dr. Vanneste, it's in Dutch but I will try to translate:

      "I am only a scientific advisor and do not work for Neuromod. At this moment the expected release date in Belgium will be around the middle of September.
      The audiogram is not necessary for the treatment, but to see how much hearing loss you have.
      Possibly the volume can be adjusted (to a maximum level) so one can hear all the tones."​

      My questions were when there will be a release date and if you had to get it through an audiologist and needed an audiogram to set it up.

      I think Sven Vanneste is not actively working at Brai3n since Jan is doing all the work.

      Sven, Dirk and Jan were at Brai2n a couple of years ago.

      Interesting thing though is that Sven was working in Dallas up to like not long ago. Him moving to Dublin looks like Neuromod is probably not totally BS.

      Yes, he works as a professor in global brain health at the Trinity College Dublin.
      I just saw on Twitter they recently published a paper about subtypes of tinnitus according to hearing loss.

      Interesting. So if Neuromod is gonna be available officially in Belgium in September... I wonder what other expansion plans they have in place that we don't know about? It would be much easier for me to travel to, say, Austria than Ireland...
