We are very excited to be supporting the pre-release of Tinnibot, the first virtual coach which provides psychological support to tinnitus sufferers using evidence-based techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and sound therapy. 

According to Dr Fabrice Bardy, a hearing scientist at the University of Auckland:

digital technology has really transformed the way we can access care today. It gives us the possibility to get support in your pocket anytime and anywhere. 

Tinnibot is a portable and personalised tool to help people manage their tinnitus. The virtual companion has been designed to help provide the following benefits:

  • Reduced stress
  • Enhanced wellbeing 
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Promote self-empowerment

The app has an eight-week programme covering four categories: Knowledge is Power, Changing Perception, Relax and Meditate and Sleep Better. Tinnibot employs a range of CBT techniques including framing and reframing, goal setting, action planning and in the future, social support.

It is currently being trialled in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, with plans to launch in Belgium in the near future as well.
