How It Works
Vacuum Therapy is a simple means of producing an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. It does not require medication, injections, or surgery and is successful in treating Erectile Dysfunction due to virtually every underlying cause. An acrylic cylinder is placed over the penis and against the body. A vacuum is then created which draws blood into the penis. This increased blood flow produces enlargement and rigidity. A support ring is placed at the base of the penis in order to maintain the erection and the cylinder is then removed. The support ring will sustain an erection until it is removed. The ring may be safely left in place for up to 30 minutes.

Top Reasons to Use Vacuum Therapy
Safe and Noninvasive – The vacuum device is noninvasive. It’s external application remains on the outside of the body. Therefore there are no systemic or negative side effects.
Patient & Partner Satisfaction – Studies have indicated the success rate of a vacuum device in producing a rigid erection, suitable for intercourse exceeds 90%.
Flexibility – A significant advantage of the vacuum device is that it may be used in conjunction with other therapies. This may increase overall patient outcome results.
Builds Self Confidence – In many cases, the cause of erectile dysfunction is psychological. In such instances a vacuum therapy device may allow the patient, after his initial success, to gradually diminish his dependence on the device, as his sexual confidence returns.
Whether the cause of ED is due to prescription drug side effects, hypertension, diabetes, injury, or a radical prostatectomy, a vacuum device will produce results. Don’t suffer from ED, talk to your doctor to determine the cause of the problem and obtain a treatment method that is best for you.

Please research articles on early intervention and clinical protocols in the use of vacuum therapy following a Radical Prostatectomy. Early use of a vacuum device may initiate corporeal (penile) rehabilitation following a Radical Prostatectomy. Studies have supported enhanced recovery of nocturnal erections by means of penile tissue oxygenation. This also, encourages early sexual activity and interest for patients who may be inactive.
