What Does it Mean to be Research-Backed? A Review of the Science

What Does it Mean to be Research-Backed? A Review of the Science

Here at RestorEar, we use the latest biomedical research in hearing health to design our products. We are fortunate to collaborate with scientists whose work is funded by the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. But what does it mean to be “research-backed”? And what does the research say?

Below are some key publications from our research collaborators, including RestorEar co-founder Dr. Suhrud Rajguru, supporting the efficacy of cold therapy for hearing health, hearing loss, tinnitus, cochlear implant outcomes, auditory and blast trauma, and more. 

  1. Targeted therapeutic hypothermia protects against noise induced hearing loss
  2. Transcriptional response to mild therapeutic hypothermia in noise-induced cochlear injury
  3. Blood brain barrier (BBB)-disruption in intracortical silicon microelectrode implants
  4. Therapeutic hypothermia reduces cortical inflammation associated with Utah array implants 
  5. Mild therapeutic hypothermia protects against inflammatory and proapoptotic processes in the rat model of cochlear implant trauma
  6. Additive Protective Effects of Delayed Mild Therapeutic Hypothermia and Antioxidants on PC12 Cells Exposed to Oxidative Stress
  7. A cool approach to reducing electrode-induced trauma: localized therapeutic hypothermia conserves residual hearing in cochlear implantation
  8. Theoretical Evaluation and Experimental Validation of Localized Therapeutic Hypothermia Application to Preserve Residual Hearing After Cochlear Implantation
  9. Peripheral vestibular loss in noise-exposed firefighters
  10. Prevalence of Hearing Loss and Perceptions of Hearing Health and Protection among Florida Firefighters
  11. Monitoring Occupational Noise Exposure in Firefighters Using the Apple Watch

These findings were used to develop our cold therapy devices, including ReBound.
