[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas - Bxtel LLC today introduces Offwhite 1.0, its new tinnitus treatment app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Tinnitus is most often an annoying ringing sensation that affects the hearing of up to 80% of all adults. Up to 5% of the adult population experiences chronic tinnitus, and the distraction of tinnitus severely impacts quality of life. Fortunately, there are a few ways to treat tinnitus, including notched white noise therapy.
Offwhite soothes tinnitus with masking therapy by using white noise to gently drown out the tinnitus. Offwhite differs from other white noise generators by allowing the user to adjust the noise to their liking. Once the user identifies their tinnitus frequency, that frequency can be removed from the white noise, which allows for notched white noise therapy. Notched white noise therapy retrains the brain to cope with tinnitus. Alternatively, the user can select a frequency to make louder, and for some users white noise with a frequency boosted is more to their liking.
The app is very easy to use. Press the play button, and then move the frequency slider to a frequency that is the most soothing. The particular frequency can be boosted or notched, made louder or quieter.
