PALO ALTO, Calif., July 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Neosensory, a California-based startup founded by Stanford neuroscientist Dr. David Eagleman and neuroengineer Dr. Scott Novich, has partnered with Oaktree Products, the leading multi-line distributor of audiology supplies, to bring their new tinnitus program, Neosensory Duo, to thousands of hearing professionals across the country.

Neosensory has been developing innovative hearing and sensory augmentation solutions since 2015 and was recently recognized by Fast Company's 2021 World Changing Ideas Awards. Neosensory's program uses their patented wristband that creates specific vibrational patterns on the skin, synchronized with a set of tones picked up by the user's ears.

This proprietary, non-invasive method – known as bimodal stimulation – leverages neuroplasticity and has been shown to reduce tinnitus symptoms in more than 87% of users. The effectiveness of bimodal stimulation in tinnitus sufferers has been previously demonstrated in studies conducted by separate teams at the University of Michigan and Trinity College, Dublin.

Kevin Liebe, AuD, Clinical Audiologist and President of Hearing Health & Technology Matters, notes that, "Audiologists have a unique opportunity to help their patients and expand their practices by including Neosensory Duo as part of a tinnitus management program or package. Duo is much more affordable than traditional tinnitus devices making it an appealing option for both patients and clinicians."

The Neosensory Duo is now available for audiologists to order on Oaktree's website:
