Tympan is an Open Source Hearing Aid development platform. We are committed to open source and believe that in doing so we can accelerate research studies and facilitate translation of novel algorithms into widespread use.
Our goal is to lower barriers for hardware and software refinement, and facilitate translation of these advances into use in hearing aids, cochlear implants, and consumer electronics devices.
Our core group of developers is comprised of peers at the engineering firm Creare and The Auditory Signal Processing Laboratory at Boys Town National Research Hospital. Tympan supported by a grant from the National Institute of Health in partnership with the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders.
