At the present time, portable medical instruments are used everywhere for almost all kinds of daily health needs. Those high-performance instruments are used in medical facilities, hospitals, and clinics, and on the personal use level, as patients need them. Nowadays the digital means to design those instruments have become very important, and it's our goal to make use of the technology to upgrade and make those designs fast, accurate, easy to use, and inexpensive, so all people with need of those devices will be able to obtain them. At this time, there are many questions regarding tinnitus, but few definitive answers.
