Within UNITI the largest clinical study on tinnitus will be conducted at 5 clinical centers in 4 countries (Belgium, Germany, Greece and Spain). The aim is to find out which patient groups benefit most from which treatment methods. The data from the clinical study will be combined with genetic data, medical and audiological examinations and already existing databases to develop a computer model that predicts the best possible therapy. The combination of several treatment methods will also be systematically tested for the first time.
The following treatments will be investigated in the study
- structured psychological counseling & psychoeducation (via App)
- Hearing aids or sound therapy (via App)
- Behavioural Therapy
and combinations thereof.
Detailed information on the study design will be provided shortly.
