Clinical Trial with video call


MindEar, in collaboration with esteemed experts in the field of tinnitus treatment, has recently spearheaded a groundbreaking clinical trial, evaluating the effectiveness of the MindEar app. This innovative initiative seamlessly integrates online therapy with personalized support, promising to redefine the landscape of tinnitus management.

Tackling a Widespread Challenge

Tinnitus, impacting 10-15% of the population, can significantly affect mental well-being. While proven treatments like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) exist, accessibility hurdles persist. The MindEar app, coupled with MindEar’s dedicated personal support service through video calls, emerges as a game-changer, offering a potential breakthrough in tinnitus relief. [1]

Trial Methodology

In a meticulously designed trial, thirty individuals grappling with tinnitus were divided into two groups: one utilizing the app in isolation and the other integrating video calls with a psychologist. Assessments were conducted before, after, and two months post-intervention, scrutinizing factors such as tinnitus distress, anxiety, and depression.

Trial Outcomes

Both groups displayed significant improvement over time, with the video-call-integrated group exhibiting slightly enhanced results. Notably, around 65% of participants in both groups witnessed a substantial reduction in tinnitus distress by the study's conclusion. [2]

It should be noted that at the eight-week mark, 43% of participants using MindEar alone whereas 64% of those in the hybrid-intervention group witnessed a clinically significant decrease in TFI. This suggested that adding video consultation into the mix saw accelerated relief.

Empowering Tinnitus Sufferers

For those wrestling with persistent tinnitus challenges, this study emerges as a beacon of hope. The fusion of an advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based exercises available in the MindEar app in combination with periodic video calls with a psychologist showcased remarkable advancements in managing tinnitus-related distress.

A pivotal revelation is the striking efficacy of accessible digital solutions, exemplified by the MindEar app, even without in-person sessions. Whether opting for the app independently or incorporating videocalls, the results underscore a significant alleviation of tinnitus-related distress for a majority of participants. This hints at a potential shift in how individuals approach and benefit from tinnitus intervention, especially during periods of limited face-to-face interactions. [4]

What next?

Curious about the next steps? The MindEar App provides a unique opportunity to either self-care with digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or combine CBT with personalized video consultations from a tinnitus expert.

If you are interested in the latter, your first 15-minute tinnitus consultation is completely free, no obligations. Ready to explore further? Simply head to the More menu in the MindEar App and choose the chat option to take the next step on your journey.
