What Can Neosensory Do For My Patients?
Neosensory builds inexpensive, non-invasive technology to enhance sound perception through the skin.
Our wristband is a research-backed device that is proven to help with tinnitus symptoms, complement amplification (e.g. hearing aids, cochlear implants), and assist deaf patients through sound awareness.
Duo is the only wearable device that uses bimodal stimulation (sound + touch) to relieve tinnitus symptoms. The effectiveness of bimodal stimulation for tinnitus treatment has been shown in multiple studies [1, 2, 3] and Duo is the only easily accessible solution on the market.
Clarify listens for speech and translates difficult to hear phonemes into vibrations on the wrist. After 3 weeks of use, the brain combines the vibrotactile stimuli with auditory stimuli to provide greater speech understanding, with or without hearing aids .
For individuals with severe-to-profound hearing loss. The band captures important sounds like alarms, car noise, doorbells, or alarm clocks and translates them into vibrational patterns felt on the wrist, bringing rich situational awareness and safety to the user .

For Your Tinnitus Patients
Tinnitus affects 10 – 15% of people. It’s not rare, but it can be difficult to live with. There’s no cure for tinnitus, but new neuroscience research shows that pairing notes with touch (known as bimodal stimulation) can reduce the volume and annoyance of ringing in the ears. This was originally done with tones plus shocks on the tongue, with strong results: about 80% of participants were significantly helped, with an average of 25% reduction in symptoms.
Our Tinnitus Solution: Neosensory Duo
For Neosensory Duo, we have made this simpler and more effective. First, no doctor’s visit is required. We mail the equipment to your home. You simply download our free app, put on the wristband, and listen to a specially designed series of notes for 15 minutes a day. The sounds and our patented vibrations are synchronized, which tells the brain which sounds are external and which are internal. Over the course of weeks, neuroplasticity sets in to pay less attention to the internal sounds. Tinnitus becomes less challenging to deal with on a daily basis. Most customers participate in our subscription program for 2 months, some find it useful to keep it for 3 months, and others keep it forever.
Symptomatology monitoring: our free app includes a Tinnitus Functional Index tracker, allowing your patients to record their improvement effortlessly over time. In the recommended follow-up visit after 8 weeks of exercises, patients should bring their smartphone to share with you their TFI results.

Clarify for Speech Comprehension
Nearly 20% of the world’s population suffers from hearing loss, and even those with healthy hearing can have difficulty understanding speech, especially in noisy environments.
To help with speech understanding, we have developed Clarify: your AI-powered partner that helps you understand speech via small vibrations on your wrist.
Introducing Neosensory Clarify
The Clarify wristband delivers spatially unique vibrations to the wrist in correspondence with target phonemes that are typically the most difficult to hear, especially in the presence of noise. The wristband picks up sound from the environment through an onboard microphone, and uses a machine learning algorithm to filter background noise and extract target phonemes from speech.
With practice, the brain learns to combine information from the skin with auditory signals from the ears. The user is then able to understand a complete and meaningful message through the integration of complementary sensory inputs.
Proven improvement over just six weeks
Improvement over six weeks, as measured by the Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit (APHAB). The chart represents the change in perceived level of disability over the course of six weeks of wearing the wristband. Envelope represents standard error of the mean.
Our clinical studies show that Clarify successfully transforms speech sounds into haptic vibrations on the wrist, helping users better understand speech. This markedly improves the quality and productivity of daily activities, including the ability to connect with others in noisy environments and fully enjoy conversations, movies, and podcasts. The Clarify wristband can be used by itself or in conjunction with traditional hearing aids.
For Your Deaf and HoH Patients
For years we have studied how people who are deaf or hard of hearing can learn to identify sounds that are algorithmically translated into spatiotemporal patterns of vibration on the skin of the wrist.
In our peer-reviewed, published data, we have demonstrated that in a three-alternative forced choice task, participants could determine the identity of up to 95% of the stimuli simply by the spatial pattern of vibrations on the skin. Performance improved significantly over the course of 1 month. Similar results were obtained with pattern discrimination, in which a pattern representing the sound of one word was presented to the skin, followed by that of a second word. Participants answered whether the word was the same or different.
With minimal difference pairs (distinguished by only one phoneme, such as “house” and “mouse”), the best performance was 83% (average of 62%), while with non-minimal pairs (such as “house” and “zip”) the best performance was 100% (average of 70%).
These results demonstrate that participants are capable of using the channel of the skin to interpret sound.
