The Levo System by Otoharmonics
Utilizing an FDA-cleared neuroscience-based approach, the Levo System is a personal and patented nightly sound therapy designed to improve the quality of your daily life.
While perceived in the ear, Tinnitus actually occurs in the brain. Many people experience TINNITUS (TIN-a-tus or Tin-EYE-tus) as a ringing, buzzing, humming, whistling or ocean like sound. Although it is commonly described as 'ringing in the ears', the variety of sounds and combinations that people experience can range from bothersome to one that dramatically impacts their day-to-day lives.
This is where the Levo System comes in. Through a series of interactive activities, the precise sound of your tinnitus will be identified, giving you the means to understand and demonstrate to others the sound you live with. Your unique sound is then used to create an individualized therapy for you to use at home while you sleep.
User-friendly, patented Levo software on a provided Apple iPod Touch will allow you to listen to your personalized sound match at home. Custom fit ear buds, designed to ensure comfort during sleep, allow for optimal positioning and controlled delivery of sound therapy. Used nightly, you will be able to share your individualized progress and determine needed improvements over time.
Unlike traditional maskers and/or sound generators, the Levo System is specifically designed for use during sleep when the brain is especially responsive to habituation. Through a series of interactive activities, the precise sounds of your tinnitus are identified and used to create an individualized therapy for you to use at home while you sleep.
Like a computer’s hard drive, the brain efficiently reorganizes itself while we sleep. Selectively removing the unnecessary bits of information, our brain prioritizes new and stored information to lock in learning and memory. As a result, new neural connections are created, rerouted or reduced to make way for new learning and problem solving activities.
By using the Levo System at night, patients leverage the brain's natural ability to diminish the effects of tinnitus over time.
