I have been building over the last few weeks an online application that allows people to paint their reactions to their tinnitus, and to then upload their picture to an online gallery to share with other people.

Ok – Some people on the RNID forum asked to see some pics of my wearable “bed-phones” I made – so here we go. Unfortunately I didn’t take any pics of me wearing them as this would have lead to the fashion police on my case – and also leave me open to blackmail plots ;0 Continue Reading »

I find the sounds of the sea very soothing and its nice to have Continue Reading »
Here is a little pulse therapy application I made that I am offering up for free use on this blog. This application works on the principle of residual Inhibition – Instructions for use and description of pulses can be found below the application.

As a “truth seeker” there’s nothing that ruffles my feathers more, than the mention of homeopathic medicine. This totally unscientific form of treating illness is rampant on the Internet and these snake oil peddlers are particularly drawn towards desperate tinnitus sufferers. Do any search for “tinnitus cure” on the Internet and you will find a plethora of homeopathic pills and potions that swear to Continue Reading »
