Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT), uses a combination of low level, broad-band noise and counseling to achieve the habituation of tinnitus, that is the patient is no longer aware of their tinnitus, except when they focus their attention on it, and even then tinnitus is not annoying or bothersome.
Based on personal experience and a long association with organisations involved with the Deaf and hearing impaired community, WOM has developed a range of products and services such as induction loops, infrared/FM systems, teletext decoders/VCRs, visual and vibrating alert systems, to name a few specifically designed to cater for the needs of our clients.
The Melbourne Spinal & Sport Medicine Clinic Our clinic works closely with Assoc Prof Peter Selvaratnam and Dr Sharlene Thuraisingham – they are experienced in treating the physical symptoms associated with tinnitus, hyperacusis, acoustic shock and TTTS. They have developed a holistic approach, which has been of benefit with many of our patients.
