SILICON VALLEY, CALIFORNIA — Neosensory is an officially registered organization on SAM.gov and approved to bid on contracts for the US Government. With employees in the U.S. Military, Neosensory has a heart for our Nation’s Veterans and, with SAM.gov approval, hopes to begin the process of bidding on VA contracts.**
Hearing problems are the most common service-related disability reported by veterans to the VA – specifically, chronic ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus, and hearing loss. Serving near loud machinery, gunfire, and explosions can damage the inner ear and lead to the development of tinnitus, hearing loss, and even deafness. Neosensory offers help for all these conditions through different programs on our innovative wristband, which uses haptic technology (patterns of vibration on the skin) to help users experience sound, understand conversations, and reduce ringing in the ears.
Neosensory Duo – uses bimodal stimulation (two forms of sensory input) to teach a user’s brain to ignore the phantom noise caused by tinnitus. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in a double-blind, peer-reviewed study published in the International Tinnitus Journal. In eight weeks users find significant relief from tinnitus by wearing the band and listening to tones from Neosensory’s mobile app for 10 minutes per day.
Neosensory Clarify – listens to speech and translates high-frequency sounds into specific patterns felt on the wrist. Over a period of weeks users begin to more clearly hear what is being said. Clarify users report needing their hearing aids less or not at all after using the band.
Neosensory Sound Awareness – allows a user to experience all sounds around them, which is especially useful for those who are Deaf or profoundly hard of hearing. The wristband uses millions of unique vibrational patterns to identify specific sounds around the wearer. After an adjustment period, those who cannot hear with their ears can easily identify sounds such as cars, a baby crying, door bells ringing and much more.
All of these innovations can be accessed on the same wristband and audiologists can learn how to offer these products to their patients by contacting us at [email protected].

Registration via SAM.gov allows Neosensory to bid on contracts with government entities, including the VA, but has not yet bid on VA contracts. If VA providers would like to order Neosensory solutions, an account must be set up with individual VA sites for off contract ordering.

Neosensory was founded by Stanford neuroscientist David Eagleman in 2015. Dr. Eagleman has aimed his laboratory research toward ways to expand human sensory abilities. This led to the invention of the company’s novel haptic feedback wristband, which is being used by wearers, audiologists and scientists around the world.
