ANM T30 CR – Tinnitus Treatment Device
The ANM T30 CR Neurostimulator is the first device developed for treating tinnitus, an ailment that affects 5 to 10 percent of the population to varying degrees. Helbling developed the system from the ground up based on the findings of scientific research conducted on a medical procedure. Comprising a doctor’s console and a portable acoustic stimulator, the system uses medical headphones to deliver therapeutic tones that are customized to meet the specific needs of each patient. Prof. Peter A. Tass, a doctor, mathematician and physicist of the Forschungszentrum Jülich research center, worked together with his team to develop a complex mathematical stimulation algorithm for treating tinnitus. This patented algorithm is called Coordinated Reset (CR) and calculates an individual sequence of therapeutic tones for each patient. The procedure itself is called Acoustic CR Neuromodulation. ANM Adaptive Neuromodulation GmbH was founded to facilitate the transfer of this technology from basic research to practical applications. The company then commissioned Helbling to develop a marketable product as quickly as possible. Helbling has amassed many years of experience in the development of portable, low-power medical products such as insulin pumps and special implants. It also has the necessary resources to guarantee a short time to market.
