Tinnitus (a persistant ringing in the ears) affects about 10-15% of the population in a mild way, with about 1% of the population severely affected. In the worst cases, it can be very debilitating causing many psychological side-effects. Until recently, very little has be found to reduce, much less cure, this condition.

Neuromod Devices, and Irish company, have developed a device they call Mutebutton that in clinical trials has produced a 42% reduction in the patients perceived loudness of tinnitus.
