The tinnitus patch Antinitus® takes centre stage at world congress
30 June, 2017 / Written by Antinitus
Antinitus® was an active participant at the World Tinnitus Congress on May 22–24 in Warsaw. The purpose of the visit was to pursue news and research on tinnitus, and to present the Antinitus patch, a Swedish innovative treatment method for tinnitus.
A growing number of people worldwide suffer from tinnitus, an estimated 10–15% of the world’s population. Therefore, tinnitus research is of increasing clinical and social interest. The World Tinnitus Congress brings together the most experienced and prominent researchers and clinics to actively discuss the latest ideas, results and challenges, with the aim of applying new insights to tinnitus in research and clinical work.
Antinitus was well represented in both the research and market areas, as well as by representatives from the clinical study work that has been carried out. Antinitus® exhibited as a partner and presented the tinnitus patch Antinitus. This innovative treatment for tinnitus quickly attracted attention from interested congress participants. Many people thought it was exciting to come across a completely new approach to tinnitus research and the mechanics and technology of the treatment. Some also established that the product’s clinical studies had very positive results compared to other treatments for tinnitus.
“After attending the World Tinnitus Congress, we have ascertained that we are at the forefront of tinnitus research. There is still no generally accepted and well-functioning treatment for tinnitus, and that is where we see a great potential for the tinnitus patch Antinitus. I would like to thank the organisers for a successfully executed congress with many interesting lectures, and for having created a meeting place that gathers researchers, therapists and companies to work together to help all people suffering from tinnitus.”
Tommy Rönngren, then-CEO, Antinitus.
Taking part in medical congresses on tinnitus and other hearing disorders is part of Antinitus’ strategy for gaining a greater understanding in the area, with the goal of expanding the product range to more and better products that can help the world’s population achieve increased well-being.
Antinitus® is a Swedish innovation in the form of a crescent-shaped patch that can relieve the discomfort of tinnitus. The skin-friendly patch is applied behind the ear and is very easy to use. The treatment period is three weeks and the patch is replaced every day for hygienic reasons. The patch releases no substances or medications and one can live a completely normal life during the course of treatment. Clinical studies in Sweden show that at least 50% experience relief of their tinnitus discomfort and without the risk of serious side effects.
