Tinnitus is a complex condition caused by damage in the ear which results in random and spontaneous signals being sent to the brain. Tinnitus can be difficult to live with and currently there is no cure. The current prognosis through the primary care pathway focuses on hearing loss with limited emotional support and management of the condition. The development of the Tinnibot App was designed to address this gap through providing a range of tools to support the management of Tinnitus through evidence-based therapy such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), therapeutic soundscapes and mindfulness training.
