Screening, Intake And First Fit (either PRO-FIT Or SELF-FIT Fitting )for Hearing Loss

Approximately 48 million people in the United States have hearing loss or hearing difficulties in noisy environments. Whisper.ai Inc has previously brought to market a commercial hearing aid system that reduces background noise and amplifies voices and sounds of interest using its proprietary platform based on machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies. Whisper.ai Inc now seeks to bring to market a new hearing system that will incorporate a "self-fitting" capability. Self-fitting hearing aids have emerged in recent years as a potentially viable option to calibrate hearing aids to the needs of individual users without clinician intervention. The purpose of this project is to evaluate the efficiency and reliability of the fitting procedure and algorithms developed by Whisper.ai Inc. The study will be carried out using a randomized crossover design in two phases: in phase 1, subjects will be tested and a hearing aid will be fitted using conventional audiological standard procedures , and in phase 2, the subject will be tested and a hearing aid will be fitted using the results of the self-fitting algorithm. Objective, subjective, and behavioral responses will be gathered from a variety of hearing-related surveys and tests, and will be analyzed quantitatively to evaluate the efficiency and reliability of the self-fitting algorithm. The investigators expect the fitting results of the Whisper.ai self-fitting algorithm to be similar to those of standardized fitting procedures conducted by hearing professionals.

Combined Optical And Electrical Stimulationfor Hearing Loss

Coral Gables, FL

All Sexes
Neural stimulation with photons has been proposed for a next generation of cochlear implants (CIs). The potential benefit of photonic over electrical stimulation is its spatially selective activation of small populations of spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs). Stimulating smaller neuron populations along the cochlea provides a larger number of independent channels to encode acoustic information. Hearing could therefore be restored at a higher fidelity and performance in noisy listening environments as well as music appreciation are likely to improve . While it has been demonstrated that optical radiation evokes auditory responses in animal models, it is not clear whether the radiant exposures used in the animal experiments are sufficient to stimulate the auditory system of humans. The proposed tests are: to demonstrate that light delivery systems (LDSs) can be inserted and oriented optimally in the human cochlea. to show that the LDSs are able to deliver sufficient amount of energy to evoke a compound action potential of the auditory nerve. to validate that the fluence rate (energy / target area) required for stimulation is below the maximal fluence rate, which damaged the cochlea in animal experiments. to show that combined optical and electrical stimulation is able to significantly lower the threshold required for optical stimulation in humans. The endpoints for the study are either the completion of the experiments proposed or the demonstration that not sufficient energy can be delivered safely in the human cochlea to develop an action potential.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
