Shocking treatment helps erectile dysfunction

Low-intensity shockwaves treats impotence, scientists say

If you experience impotence, instead of a little blue pill maybe you want to apply shockwaves to your privates instead.

Experiments now suggest directing shockwaves at penises can help treat erectile dysfunction .

“We can really reverse erectile problems with this,” researcher Yoram Vardi, head of the neuro-urology department at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, Israel, told LiveScience

“While patients with erectile dysfunction can function with Viagra or Cialis, this is not a cure — when they stop the medication, they cannot function,” he added. “This is only a preliminary study, but here with shockwaves, we can do something biological for the problem — after treatments, these patients can function without the need for medication.”

In animal studies, low-intensity shockwaves have been proven to trigger growth of new blood vessels from existing ones. Vardi and his colleagues therefore speculated that shockwave therapy could help men whose erectile dysfunction stems from reduced blood flow to their penises.

“Cardiovascular problems are responsible for approximately 80 percent of patients with erectile dysfunction, so that’s a huge amount of patients,” Vardi explained.

Volunteers shocked

The researchers treated 20 volunteers with an average age of 56 years old who had mild or moderate erectile dysfunction for roughly three years.

At each session, a device that resembles a computer mouse applied shockwaves at five different sites on their penises.

“These are very, very low energy shock waves,” Vardi said. Each shockwave applied roughly 100 bar of pressure — some 20 times the air pressure in a bottle of champagne, but less than the pressure exerted by a woman in stiletto heels who weighs 132 lbs. (60 kg).

“This sort of energy is completely different from what you would get in a massage, although everyone can do what they want,” Vardi said.

Each site on the penis received some 300 shockwaves over the course of three minutes. The men underwent two weekly sessions for three weeks, and then repeated this course of therapy after three weeks of rest.

Significant improvement was seen in 15 of 20 men. “We didn’t find any side effects, and it didn’t hurt,” Vardi noted.

Even if further studies bear out these results, this is not a cure for everyone, Vardi cautioned. The researchers chose men whose problems were apparently due to blood flow, as opposed to nerve, muscle or other issues.

Expanding tests

The researchers are now expanding their research with placebo groups and more patients.

“This is only the beginning — we need to understand much better what is happening,” Vardi said. “We also want to see how long this response will stand — is it forever, one year, two years, six months? We know that at three months, it stays the same.”

Vardi and his colleagues detailed their findings November 17 at the European Society for Sexual Medicine meeting in Lyon, France.


For Lampwick, becoming hung like a donkey was the result of a total commitment.

Thats pretty cool, could open up a whole new way for men =D

Sweet!

So hows this working?

So I suspect for $100,000 you to can have your very own unit!

A lot cheaper then that. Here is just one manufacturer of electro sex products, PES Electro:

The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.

E-stim might work? I really don’t know much about this. Not sure if the machine in my link is a different concept but pretty sure they used a similar devise in the study(s).

The machine in your link looks like a very expensive vibrator to me. Plus, the doctor is in charge of vibrating your cock. Sounds a little weird actually.

I must admit I missed the mark in my link though. That is for electric stimulation which is different from the thread subject. Sorry.

I have had an EMS for years for legit uses (well kinda) but now its gonna be stapped to my cock and set in a phone case on my belt for all day use lol


You all are still missing the point... The story was great and all but should have ass (and) some anal in it.- RWG

Gprent, no need to be sorry. The estim may give similar results? I was just posting a link to the type a machine that was probably used in the study. Wonder if the way the current delivered is closer to a TENS unit and not like a muscle stimulator unit? If someone has a TENS they may considered applying to their dick? Of course if one does please research the safety of that first.

I’m sure in a few years there will be home models of the linked version.

I would request a female to give me the treatments. But if I had any issues I suspect I would just have to deal with a male to apply treatment if that is all that was available.

Hehe, I’m ordering close to 2k worth of that stuff in about a month for wife and I.


Since you are my property, the contents of your mind are also my property, and you will give them to me when I ask.

Hmm I guess that’s why some vibrating fleshjacks improve ED a bit.


"Men are gifted with two heads, sadly they do not

have enough blood to run

both at the same time" by anonymous

I’m guessing could this be used as preventative treatment as well for those without ED?

Interesting stuff.

If memory serves, the primary work on this idea was done in Israel a number of years ago and the results were impressive.
