Oto is a science-based therapy programme that’s available on Android and iOS devices that claims to keep tinnitus treatment simple. It offers an extensive sound therapy library plus ‘notch therapy’, the ability to tailor sounds to the pitch of your tinnitus, providing even more effective masking.
• Range of cognitive behavioural therapy
Oto provides a range of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) exercises to train your brain to respond differently to the sound it perceives. This means that, over time, you’ll hear your tinnitus less and less, with the goal of habituation – the point at which you no longer notice it at all.
• Sleep relaxation and sleep features
Oto also offers relaxation and sleep features, and, because it’s structured as a journey, it gives you a sense of control over your condition when many sufferers often report feeling a sense of hopelessness. Oto enables you to set yourself goals and track changes in your tinnitus.
• Designed by doctors and tinnitus experts
Oto has been designed by doctors and tinnitus experts who have worked with people with the condition for years. You can sign up for a free trial, so there’s nothing to lose.
