The Meniett device delivers a computer-controlled, complex algorithm of low-pressure pulses to the middle ear, where they act on the round window membrane. It is believe that the energy of the pressure pulses displaces the perilymphatic perilymphatic /peri·lym·phat·ic/ (-lim-fat´ik)
1. pertaining to the perilymph.

connects the saccule of the membranous labyrinth of the internal ear to the endolymphatic sac. fluid and results in a reduction of endolymphatic fluid.
The device is a proven, effective alternative to traditional surgical treatment methods that can be costly and unpredictable in outcome. Treatment with the Meniett device is nondestructive non·de·struc·tive
