The solution

We developed the first telemedicine app that helps treat tinnitus patients worldwide.

Solution tech's specifics

We worked as the startup’s tech partner and developed the first telemedicine app that helps treat tinnitus patients worldwide practically and efficiently.

Tinnitus patients can download the app on any Apple Device (iPad, iPhone, etc.) and use their preferred headphones.

The app:

Allows patients to receive remote and personalized medical treatments for Tinnitus by experts in the field.

Creates and adjusts therapeutic sounds using the latest technologies to provide the best treatment possible.

Patients take an active role and are encouraged to keep up with their treatments.

Physicians and patients can graphically see the historical evolution of the treatment to understand their standing point and get valuable insights on how to get the optimum result.

Our working methodology

We started with a Product Strategy phase to fully understand the project’s needs and plan a perfect solution.

During the project, we worked with Agile Methodologies, carrying out sprints, code reviews, and continuous quality assurance instances. The team was composed of Web and Mobile Developers, a UX/UI Designer, a Quality Specialist and a Project Manager.
