Dublin-based Neuromod Devices said it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for its new multi-sensory device to treat tinnitus, also known as “ear-ringing.”
The product, mutebutton, is a handheld device that helps the brain distinguish between real and phantom noises through audio and tongue stimulation.
The company says mutebutton has been shown to gradually reduce tinnitus when used for at least 30 minutes a day over a 10-day period.
Neuromod plans to launch mutebutton in Ireland in December. A larger European launch is expected early next year, according to a press release.
The company is headquartered at NovaUCD, the Centre for New Ventures and Entrepreneurs at University College Dublin.
