Added in May 2009, Acoustic Trauma was established in response to the marked increase in Hearing loss, Tinnitus and Balance disorders amongst military service members returning from current conflicts. The focus of the portfolio is a collaborate multidisciplinary effort with scientists, engineers and industry to provide short and long term solutions for the military. Current areas of focus include hearing/ear blast protection, medical treatment of acoustic trauma, objective measurement of tinnitus, tinnitus treatment, hearing and vestibular rehabilitation. Emphasis is on practical solutions to directly benefit the war fighter, but all areas of acoustic trauma with ultimate benefit to military, it's veterans and beneficiaries are of interest.
