IN THIS PHASE, THE PRIMARY COMMITMENT WILL BE TO DEVELOP THE ELECTRODYNAMIC PRESSURE GENERATOR THAT WILL DELIVER THE CONTROLLED LEVELS AND RATES OF POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE PRESSURE PULSES TO THE PATIENT'S EAR CANAL. THE INSTRUMENT WILL BE CAPABLE OF DELIVERING THE PRESSURE PULSES NEEDED FOR THE INITIAL CLINICAL TRIALS AND ALSO BE FLEXIBLE TO ALLOW FOR ANY SUBSEQUENT MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED.
